Knit a bike at workshops in Haworth with artist Cassandra Kilbride
9:00am Tuesday 25th February 2014 in News
A woolly bike project is steering a course to Haworth.
Yarn artist Cassandra Kilbride, famous for her crochet street art, is holding workshops at the Bronte Parsonage Museum.
The sessions, on May 27 and 29, are among 20 being held across Yorkshire to create woolly bikes, inspired by the county’s landscape and literature.
The finished bikes will form part of a trail for the Yorkshire Festival 2014, which is celebrating the Tour de France Grand Depart coming to the region.
“Cassandra is inviting people to join her in creating the bikes – to knit, crochet, sew or weave your own bit of a bike,” said a spokesman.
The finished items will be exhibited throughout July at Sheffield Cathedral.
Admission to the workshops is free, but places must be booked at yorkshireswoollybikes.co.uk
