KaPow! Eastland Has Been YARN BOMBED And You’re Invited!

So what do all 3 of these pictures have in common?

Yep, you’re right. I am obsessed with crafty goodness and have learned how to crotchet and to loom band over the last 12-18mths… Hahaha….

But what’s more exciting than my obsession with yarn and colourful creations, is the awesome new display that has taken shape at Eastland Shopping Centre in Ringwood Victoria.

Eastland’s Center Court has been renamed The Eastland Park and in a ‘retro inspired’ style has been YARN BOMBED to display an amazing array of colourful & artistic craft pieces by local Knitters, Crotchet Gurus and Looming Experts!

Now, while checking out this display may blow some of you crafty peeps away, I know there are many Common Chaos Chronicle readers out there that have been hoping to learn some Crotchet / Loom skills so they can hop aboard the yarn express.

The most fantastic part about the yarn-bombed Eastland Park, is that they are actually holding some very ‘budget friendly’ workshops for those that are keen to kick-start their new hobby!

There are workshops for the kiddies of course, but make sure you check out the adult workshops timetable and be sure to book in if you’re ready to get your craft on.

We’re geared up to be a part of the ‘Longest Fishtail Loom To Be Created In One Hour’ project which should be an absolute blast. It’s an invite only event, but the good news is you have a chance to win your way to join in the loom band fun!
