Warm Trees, 1 - 31 July 2019


Warm Trees at the National Arboretum Canberra

Warm Trees knitted installation brightens up the National Arboretum Canberra once again this winter. Come and visit during the month of July to tip toe through the knitted tulips, see a giant cargo bike knitted instillation and discover the sea of colourful scarves wrapped around trees in the Himalayan Cedar forest.

This year also features the world’s largest handcrafted frieze of colourful tulips, decorated bicycle wheels and groves of magical colour.

Get involved! Knitting and crochet drop in sessions, craft and bicycle maintenance workshops plus guided bike rides for all ages will be held throughout the month of July.

Warm Trees is the combined effort of hundreds of knitters, crocheters and crafters of all ages. Volunteers from the ACT and all-around Australia and overseas, make scarves and other items for this exciting, colourful and innovative display among the trees and buildings at the National Arboretum Canberra. It is the largest such display in the world.

This year, Warm Trees is brought to you by the Friends of the National Arboretum Canberra and Pedal Power. The diplomatic partner is the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the theme colour is orange which represents the royal colour for the Netherlands.

At the end of July, the knitting will be removed, some will be stored for a display at another time and some items made into blankets or other items to be donated to charity. Come up to the National Arboretum this July and don’t miss this colourful event!
