Yarnbombing in Tenerife

I love the idea of seeing art in unexpected places. To me, if it makes people interact and ask questions then that’s all good. Yarnbombing has been around now for a long time, but it is very rare that I get to see it “in the wild”.

Recently I visited the port of Santa Cruz in the North-East of Tenerife. Walking away from the harbour itself, I turned a corner and came across these wonderfully decorated trees.

Santa Cruz is a busy port with thriving shopping and commercial areas. It was great to see this little bit of fun in the middle of the city. Maybe we could brighten up our homes, towns, and cities with a little bit of care, colour and creativity.
