The trials and tribulations of craft bombing in Penicuilk

from the Penicuik Community Arts Association website

Craft Bomb

The PCAA, Making Space and lots of volunteers spent many, many hours making some fabulous things from fabric and yarn to decorate our town. A team went out on the 10th of May and put up bunting, butterflys and a whole array of colourful crafts around the town centre and farther afield. See the results at the links below.

Unfortunately some less community minded person(s) decided to vandalise all their great work and about 80% was torn down or removed. We are all very saddened by this but luckily many people saw it beforehand and let us know how much they liked it, bringing a bit of colour and joy to our neglected town centre.
