Norwich Arts and Crafts Group Christmas Display

The Norwich Arts and Crafts Group has a Christmas creation on display in our Norwich Hub complete with pompoms on a latch hook rug, a crochet guide dog in a hot air balloon and even hidden sound buttons.
Darryl came up with the idea of a tactile Christmas display back in March. In April the hard work began making approximately 300 red pompoms which are tied on a latch hook rug to form the words “Merry Christmas”. Then the latch hooking began and 35,000 strands later, with the help of some very dedicated people, the background was white and completed by the end of October. Darryl and his wife took on the task of backing the wall hanging and then came the fun part of attaching angels, baubles, lights, bells and various other parts to give us the finished product.

This creation has been made during the Thursday art sessions and everyone has done something toward it.
