• Seniors’ Yarn Bombing Project, street art created by local Muskoka seniors and Edge of the Woods Theatre
The Seniors Yarn Bombing Project was a collaboration between Edge of the Woods Theatre a variety of other seniors groups and programs throughout Muskoka. These included lead partner Muskoka Seniors, The Bracebridge Senior Citizen's Club, Rogers Cove and Muskoka Traditions Retirement Homes, Muskoka Landing Nursing Home and the Older Adults Programs for the Towns of Huntsville and Gravenhurst. The project was inspired by the practice of yarn bombing. This is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk. Twenty nine dedicated seniors created hundreds of small knitted squares inspired by the theme of Homeland. These individual pieces were then knitted together into larger sections to cover a number of statues of celebrated individuals that have called Muskoka their home. They included Tom Thomson in Huntsville (part of Nuit Blanche North ), and Rene Caisse in Bracebridge (in conjunction with Downtown Bracebridge Firefly Festival).
