SHE might seem like a mild-mannered mother of two, but Elissa Biermann, ofDunoon, has a secret life.
Unbeknown to even her closest friends she is a graffiti guerrilla – that is, a knitting graffiti guerrilla.
And now she and a collective of guerrilla knitters – known as ‘the yarnhood’ – have a plan to cover Lismore in knitting graffiti as part of International Yarn Bombing Day on June 11.
Yarn bombing is a street art which sees objects covered in colourful knitted or crocheted fabric.
“It’s fun and draws attention to creative people and fibre arts,” Ms Biermann said of the day on which participants worldwide hope to transform urban landscapes one stitch at a time.
A planning meeting will be held at the Evoke Yarn and Fabric, next to Caddies, at 28 Carrington Street, Lismore, today at 10am. Anyone who knits, crochets or would like to learn is welcome to attend.
