As part of this project, ArtYarn also created a small outdoor installation made from crochet doilies and motives. This piece is installed outside the main visitor enterance to Towneley Hall and introduces the Tea Cosy project quite nicely.
Here are a few images of the installation...
If there had been plenty more time to work on this part of the project it would have been interesting to cover all 6 concrete balls, but this is a big project in it's self - maybe next time.
Until then, I'm really happy with the finished result as I have never covered anything spherical before. I really liked piecing the motives together and playing around with the arrangement. It's really made me thing ideas for future ArtYarn projects. Watch this space!
