Knitting up a storm

Artist Alia Bland’s last name is the exact opposite to what she is hoping to achieve at the Greerton Village in Tauranga.

Alisa is spending today and tomorrow yarn bombing trees in the village to help brighten up the place.

Alia is one of a number of people helping to yarn bomb several trees in the village area. SunLive photographer Chris Callinan was there to capture some of the great work being put up.

Greerton Village Community Association manager Sally Benning says the theme for this year’s work is “Hundertwasser”.

Work on the trees will continue tomorrow and Sally says it’s expected to really brighten up the place.
