Textile Art in Brisbane's CBD

King George Square Lampost with Scarf

Now that winter is here in Brisbane, local crocheters and knitters have made our city cosier by installing textile art throughout the city. We popped into Brisbane’s CBD and found all sorts of surprises: statues sporting colourful scarves,  light posts decorated with skinny pullovers and clothes lines of knitted washing hanging high on Brisbane City Hall. 

Most of the winter woolies have been created by a group of around 800 crafty people called I Knit Brisbane and you can see more photos of their creations on their website.
