Get ready for 104-year-old great-grandmother Grace Brett, the oldest street artist in the world.
She recently yarn-bombed her town with the help of Souter Stormers, a secretive group of guerrilla knitters that recently yarn-bombed 46 landmarks in the Scottish county of Borders.
“I thought it was a really good idea to decorate the town and enjoyed having my crochet included,” Brett told 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.”
Brett lives in a care home and knits to keep busy. The Souter Stormers yarn-bombed Selkirk for the YES (Yarrow, Ettrick, Selkirk) arts festival.
Daphne said taking part in the yarn bombing gave her mother a sense of being “useful”, adding that “she thinks it is funny to be called a street artist.”
