Lamposts, bollards and benches were covered in colourful knitwear after a section of Harborough High Street was ‘yarn-bombed’ on Saturday.
Yarn bombing is a form of street art which sees knitted covers and decorations appearing overnight on street furniture and statues.
Like the Banksies of the knitting world, the perpertrators carry out their work in secret.
The temporary instalation was created to draw attention to Harborough Artists’ Cluster’s OPen Studios event this weekend
The organiser of the yarn bomb - who asked for their identity to remain a secret - told the Mail: “I couldn’t resist sitting on the bench watching and listening to peoples reactions to the stripey bollards and signposts, hanging hot air balloon and giant spider’s web - it’s so much fun seeing passers by unable to resist stroking a bollard or cuddling a woolly lampost!”
