104-year Grace Brett has to be the illest and oldest street artist in the world! After what can only be described as yarn-bombing her entire town with the help of the Souter Stormers, a secretive group of ‘yarnstormers’ that recently yarn-bombed 46 landmarks in the Scottish county of Borders too.
“I thought it was a really good idea to decorate the town and enjoyed having my crochet included,” Brett told the Press And Journal. “I liked seeing my work showing with everyone else and thought the town looked lovely.” Brett’s daughter Daphne, 74, explained, “she has always knitted and crocheted all through her life. She has always done all the knitting for the babies and made shawls.”
“The yarnstormers, a group of mixed age range, have been inspired by Grace to use their creative and artistic skills to transform the Selkirk landscape,” said Kay Ross, a spokeswoman for the Souter Stormers group. “Grace has confirmed that age is no barrier to participating in a contemporary project.” – what an absolute Lordette! Sack team robbo/banksy… its all about team Grace! I hope I’m as cool and inspiring as Grace if I ever reach 104.
