To celebrate the first day of spring this weekend, here’s some news from Greta Grip, one of the urban cozy artist profiled on this blog. She’s calling on local Ottawa-Gatineau artists to add some graffiti to a non-descript tree in downtown Ottawa for all to see. Here’s the details:
SPRING HAS SPRUNG YARN GRAFFITI
When: Sunday March 21st (official first day of spring)
Where: The Tree: located at the traffic lights, on the War Memorial triangle between Elgin and Wellington ( >Google Map: The tree by the girl walking by in blue). The Tree is directly across the street from the row of provincial flags, in between the Congress Centre and NAC. I have tied red yarn around the tree.
What: knit/crochet Signs of Spring: flowers, leaves, animals, insects etc…
How: Go to The Tree on Sunday March 21st (any time) and attach your Signs of Spring to the tree.
Who: you, me and everyone! (pass the word)
NOTE: organizers take no responsibility for take-down. Graffiti at your own risk!
And in case you were wondering why I’ve been a bit MIA the last few weeks. I’ve been taking a much needed R&R from the hectic months of January and February with mini-breaks to Montreal and Europe. Posts on my crafty adventures there and photos to follow shortly plus some other exciting news!
