Yap & Yarn

Back in October I started my first full-time job working in a homeless project for young women aged 18-25 years. Just before Christmas, my boss put me in charge of our art room which was in dire need of a makeover. The bulk of the materials consisted of pipe cleaners and stick-on googly eyes.

I decided to start a programme which would run in four weeks blocks to allow the women to try different activities and make sure they had input into what was running. At the same time, this would allow us to slowly stock up the art room and give the women ideas about what to make with what was in there.

This Wednesday sees the first day of the programme and we’re starting with knitting. Here are the two posters I made to put up in the project:
