This 1.5 hour workshop will provide all the materials and guidance to create your own crochet square, rainbow, or custom design for decorating trees across Ballarat.

Select trees all throughout Ballarat will be decorated with yarn during Pride Month in June to celebrate and share the beauty of our local LGBTQIA+ community.

You are invited to use the yarn, crochet hooks and knitting needles provided to create squares and rectangles. The squares will be collected by the team at the BPYBP and sewn together to be displayed in trees around Ballarat for the month of June.

So that this project can continue to benefit Ballarat even after June, once the knitted and crochet pieces have been removed from the trees, they will be washed and repurposed into blankets for Ballarat Animal Shelter.

All instructions and materials provided. With all levels from beginner to experts encouraged to join the fun and share your skills!

Ages: for young people 12-25

Presented by Youth Services in partnership with Ballarat Pride Month Yarnbombing Project (Caitlin Brown and Kit Hamilton)

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
