Yarnbomb!

You will have probably spotted by now that Corsham has been yarnbombed! Look out for pompoms up trees, ladies flying with balloons & cyril the sausage dog!

This is thanks to the fabulously talented Emma Leith who has been knitting & crocheting like a mad woman all summer! We were very excited to be featured by the Gazette & Herald newspaper, and we thought we’d share a few of our piccies from our adventures on the streets of Corsham…(obviously our identities had to be protected with balaclavas!)

Download The Brochure

Well the great news is that pretty much all 5000 printed brochures have been handed out now! There are some left at the Goldfish Bowl and The Pound Arts Centre and a few others dotted here and there, but get one quick as they’re disappearing fast!

But for those of you who are just discovering us, or who have found out about the Trail via one of our online streams, you can now download your own copy of the brochure from the homepage, our Artists Directory page or right here! Peacock Arts Brochure 2013 (pdf)

Peacock HQ have been absolutely delighted to see so many people out on the Trail for our first weekend – thank you so much for the support and we hope you’re enjoying visiting our wonderful artists! We hope you can make it round all the venues, & don’t forget those ones a little further out – they are well worth the trip, we promise!
