Full Bloom Sunflower Wall

Make your own plush sunflower!

Inspired by Kate Morton’s short story At Home on the River Bend, the MoB community has lovingly created a field of handmade fabric sunflowers. This sunny addition imagines what it would be like if we had a field of sunflowers growing inside the exhibition, embracing the joy of crafting and celebrating all the different ways we can create with fabric. Join in and make your own plush sunflower to add to the cheery field, or take it home to brighten up your room.

Community crafting in full bloom

With the end of year in sight, the MoB team set about cultivating community spirit by embracing the joy of craft. We planted a seed online, calling for fabric sunflowers, which soon blossomed into a crafting field day.

Online messages, handwritten notes and invitations to join local community groups began pouring into MoB. We watched on eagerly as our community knitted, sewed, crocheted, weaved and tufted throughout the month of October and into November.

How many did they create? Find out by reading the story linked below.
