Rock Hall “Yarn Bomb” Guidelines

Please join Rock Hall Elementary School and Main Street Rock Hall (MSRH) in creating a one-of-a-kind piece of public art. We want to construct a fun and fanciful tribute to the Chesapeake Bay that will brighten our community during this difficult time. Using yarn (knitting, crocheting, counted cross stitch, etc.) participants are asked to create a one dimensional (flat) creature or plant that represents some aspect of the Bay. Examples would be: fish, crabs, oysters, grasses, osprey, etc. Your creation does not need to be realistic, feel free to use bright colors and your imagination.

Each “creature” should be at least 1 foot in length.  Bigger is better.  The area of the completed project will be 6ft high and over 60 ft long.

Use acrylic yarn.  Wool and other natural fibers will not withstand the weather.

All yarn creations should be dropped off at either Bay Side Foods or Fresh Start by June 17th.  Tag with the artist’s name and email if possible.  Please do not place in plastic bags.

We hope to hang the mural during the last week of June. It will remain in place for about a month, or until the elements have taken their toll.

Please contact Laurie Walters ( for more information or to donate acrylic yarn, needles, or crochet hooks.
