Weaving the Wye

Free-form crochet at Queenswood

Come and join artists Meg Thimm and Pearl Jackson-Payen and have a go at some free-form crochet in Queenswood.

All levels of experience are welcome!

We want to spread awareness for our rivers by creating a green algae net out of wool. We will experience what it is like to be a fish under water as algal blooms block the light above.

Every summer algal blooms stain the Wye and other local rivers green, making the water fatal to plant-life and fish, and dangerous for otters, dogs and swimmers.

Through this project we will share our hopes for the recovery of our local rivers and the beautiful wildlife they support.
