Five Points Gallery, working with its partners, invites people from northwestern Connecticut of all ages and skills to participate. Men and women, boys and girls, all ages – from school children to seniors – are welcome to participate. All levels are welcome, from beginner through expert and classes will be available for beginners. Individuals may participate on their own but teams are also encouraged and businesses and organizations can also take part in this public art project.
Participants may work in the comfort of home or participate in one of the many yarn bombing gatherings which will be organized throughout the area. Each individual, team, businesses or organizations will be assigned a site in the downtown Torrington area. Team challenges are encouraged.
The planned installation date (weather permitting) is June 11, 2016. The various creations will be installed in Downtown Torrington along Main Street, from the Torrington Historical Society to Coe Park; along Water Street; and on Franklin Street. The yarn bombing project plans to be deinstalled in September 2016.
However, work on the Yarn Bombing Project is starting now.
Interested in participating? If so, we invite you to attend one of the informational sessions which will be held at Five Points Gallery on the following dates: Saturday Nov. 14 at 2 pm or Sunday, Dec. 6 at 1 p.m. Dates for design workshops, beginner classes and “yarn-ins” will be announced in the near future.
