Where: Council Chambers, Vancouver City Hall, 453 West 12th Avenue, Vancouver

You are invited to come and knit or crochet pink blossoms for the Joy Kogawa cherry tree. Meet knit-graffiti artists Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain, authors of Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti, and help them create an art phenomenon at one of Vancouver’s favourite literary landmarks: Historic Joy Kogawa House, 1450 West 64th Avenue. Blossoms will be sewn onto the tree on Sunday, March 6, 2 to 3:30pm, and will be in place throughout the month of march. Drop by to help or just to watch the magic happen!
