ICA’s Community Crafters project was created during the first COVID-19 lockdown period in order to help tackle isolation and loneliness. The simple act of crafting encouraging people to keep active and engaged with their community while stuck at home.
Two years later the project is still running and getting stronger with each new theme.
Just take a look at the images below to see what our amazingly talented Crafters have created for the Winter stage of our current Crafters theme, Wild ‘n’ Woolly.
To date, around 40 local residents have created the 800+ items included in this installation – from knitted tree squares and baubles to snowflakes, Santas and stockings. The finished effect is a fun and fabulous, festive display, guaranteed to warm your heart.
Massive thanks to everyone involved.
If you would like to see the work face-to-face, just pop along to The Easton Shopping Centre next time you’re in the area.
If you’d like to be involved in our next project (which we’re planning will be even bigger and better), just drop your contact details into the office so we can tell you all about it.
