.... yarn bombing award...

Quiet days at l'Espace - you would think, but behind the scenes we have been busy collaborating with some of the third year knitting students at Royal College of Art, London, on an award for the best Yarn Bombing.  Marion Faole will be judging the shortlisted entries and the most interesting and creative submission in her opinion will win a place on her five-day workshop with us in October, including full board and flights from London to Bergerac.  A great opportunity for a young and aspiring textile designer to work alongside a knitting icon.   

We thought you'd be interested to see some of the submissions and to start the ball rolling (no pun intended) here is one by Amy Bant, called Road Kill, with some of the preparation drawings and a selection of the intriguing individual components used to make up the unfortunate winged creature..

Well done, Amy!
