FREE event.  Come and browse these marvellous handmade hangings- large and small- created from the many contributions to WAF 2013's community project. From the local community to diaspora far afield, as well as those with ancestral links to Wicklow, hundreds of varied yarn pieces made up the yarnbomb. As a legacy to this huge project, the pieces are being gradually re-assembled into large display pieces of artwork. Having already repurposed a great amount into hangings, this is an ongoing project which has so far been exhibited at Culture Night 2013, WAF 2014 and will continue to be displayed when possible.
