Briswool

Briswool…it’s Bristol made out of wool.

This cute, creative idea – the result of around 3,000 hours of knitting and crocheting – has been assembled by Paper Village (an earlier version of Briswool went on display a couple of years ago at their North Street shop). It’s now at the M Shed for a month (until 12 June) and it’s well worth a visit – the scale and attention to detail (a Cheo bee, the water-spraying Pyronaut, the infamous Bristol crocodile, the Shaun outside St Mary Redcliffe, concorde…) are incredibly impressive, and it’s fun trying to identify all the different places and references while you’re admiring the hard work.
