Craftivism: Bird Yarns Project knits missing seabirds
Climate change is having a seriously worrying effect on the world around us, and when and where birds migrate is one of the elements that is sadly changing. In Scotland islanders are seeing less of their seabirds, and one concerned crafty artist has decided to highlight this with an inspiring handmade knitting project.
Using local wool from Ardalanish and Mull, along with recycled materials, the knitters are creating a flock of
'lost' arctic terns on Tobermory Pier, and are treating their fibre-feathered friends to a Mull
welcome of local food, music and poetry.

Knitting kits are being offered in partnership with local producers to not only highlight the plight of migratory birds, but also celebrate local resources and resourcefulness.
