Bournemouth Library unveils a woolly community garden

Over 1,500 knitters and crochet artists aged three to 99 years-old from Bournemouth spent the last six months creating a unique knitted garden incorporating gnomes, ponds, a garden shed, vegetable patches, wildlife, insects and a BBQ.

The project, funded by Bournemouth Libraries, Bournemouth Arts Development and the Arts Council Southwest, will be displayed until 4 June when it is hoped it will begin a tour of the UK.

Artists and project organiser Pauline Stanley said the project had been a great success: "There has been lots of skill sharing between different generations and nationalities. The knitted garden is stunning and makes everyone smile," she added.
