New Lanark's #CraftBomb2015
New Lanark stages #CraftBomb2015 as part of Voluntary Arts Week 2015
On Friday 15 May New Lanark World Heritage Site celebrated the launch of Voluntary Arts Week with a #CraftBomb2015 using New Lanark Wool.
New Lanark’s #CraftBomb2015 is part of Voluntary Arts Week – a national celebration of creative activity taking place across the UK and Republic of Ireland from 15 – 24 May 2015.
The idea behind this special week is to highlight the fantastic creativity that regularly takes place in villages, towns and cities – and encourage newcomers to have a go.
Many local community groups were involved with making knitted creations for New Lanark’s #CraftBomb2015, including: New Lanark Primary School; Scottish Wildlife Trust; Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership; Clyde Valley Crafts Group and of course, staff & volunteers from New Lanark.
“We produce New Lanark wool on site using our historic textile machinery so we thought it was the perfect opportunity for us to get involved with the launch of Voluntary Arts Week and their #CraftBomb initiative” Melissa Reilly, New Lanark Marketing and PR Officer. “It was also a chance to add a splash of colour to our already beautiful surroundings!”
