Yarn Bombing the Tree of Knowledge (Kaartdijn Boorn)

In celebration of National Reconciliation Week, local Aboriginal artist Lea Taylor, will 'yarn bomb’ the Tree of Knowledge at the City of Perth Library. 
 
Yarn bombing is a popular street art movement that involves beautifying an area by covering objects in knitted or crocheted yarn. In her own version, Lea will use ancient weaving techniques to create coil ropes of natural and hand dyed raffia. The ropes will be hand stitched around the trunk and lower branches of the Tree of Knowledge.
