Created from yarn using crochet techniques, this installation is one of the creative highlights of the Sydney Stitches & Craft show. It is the largest crochet artwork Prudence Mapstone has created, measuring a stunning 6 metres long. Prudence is well known in the worldwide knitting and crochet scene for her creative freeform garments and art pieces. The work will be hung over a framework allowing visitors to walk beneath the work.

Safe Passage

They sought a track
that others said
led nowhere in particular

but sometimes
(on the best of days)
the heavens glimmered gently
all around –

wrapping them as a soft blanket,
and warming them to the very
core.
