A giant woolly bauble ( BUOYBLE) for the Dockside

A video of the Buoy that we covered in 1400 crochets hexagons


We have created a giant Christmas bauble using knitted and crocheted motifs inspired by the Pumphouse in Underfall Yard. Our plan was to completely transform the buoy on Brunel Square, located beside the SS Great Britain and on loan from M Shed into an eye-catching bauble. The bauble will be next on display in April 2018.
