Colourful Roots Project
This Challenge is Finished. Thank you to everyone who got involved.
Sue Sturdy, mastermind of the Colourful Roots Project, is constructing an exhibit in a new renovation project for the City of Brampton. There is a tunnel that is under construction that is connecting the museum, art gallery and archives together.
To make this tunnel more engaging for creativity, Sue is creating an underground secret garden using crochet, knit, quilting and other creativity to construct this underground wonderland. Having met Sue in person, the creativity that she has within herself is contagious. She appreciates hand crafted items and the work involved.
Sue was the mastermind in transforming a historical bridge in Cambridge Ontario Canada to a fibre art piece. Together with the community, people created afghans to cover the bridge. Sue’s creation isn’t about using up scrap yarn and wasting it on a bridge. Her message is about community awareness through the arts. Afghans were donated to charities afterwards.
See some pictures of this major project that was constructed. Remember this is a community effort in transforming this bridge.
How Can You Get Involved?
Be part of something monumental and historic.
You can read more information about this project and exactly what they are looking for. They are essentially looking for crochet flowers to decorate the underground tunnel.
You can either send your donations to Sue directly at the information provided on her website or you can send them to The Crochet Crowd Studio. If you send your donations to me, I will photograph your contributions and add it to our Facebook Page for extra recognition. I will also record your name on our website as an official contributor to the Peel Heritage Complex Museum / Art Gallery Exhibit.
There will be extensive media coverage involved in this project. This is a great opportunity to be recognized in creating something unique and fun. When the exhibit is finished, all donations will be furthered on to an official charity.
Due Date is AUGUST 25th. This exhibit is set to open to the public in September 2012.
