In the first half of 2017, Teddy Bears Without Borders crafters created a yarnbombing piece in support of refugees and asylum seekers for the Knitfest 2017 tree cosy competition. You can read all about that project here.
To continue to spread the message of compassion and safe harbour for all those who seek asylum, we are now moving into phase two of the project and opening up our piece for loan to any community group or organisation that would like to host it for a week to a few days at a time.
If you are part of a group – school, kindy, workplace, community group – that would like to display our piece and its message of safe harbour, please get in contact and we’ll do our best to organise it.
We will update this project page with images of our travelling piece regularly as it moves around!
Safe Harbour at Holy Cross Primary School, Wooloowin, Qld: November 2017
Holy Cross have been a great supporter of Teddy Bears Without Borders this year, with their craft group, led by Sue Shaw, providing multitudes of teddies for all of our projects.
The school went to great lengths to involve the children in the installation of the tree jumper, with each class coming out in turn to watch the installation and find out more about the message behind the piece. The tree jumper will remain at Holy Cross until the end of the school term, so this will no doubt be our piece’s final display for this year.
