Brome Leighad’s Knitted Mushrooms

Brome Leighad creates these detailed, wooly mushrooms. Each one is based on a real life counterpart and is placed in the setting where they would naturally be found. Just imagine the confusion and then amusement of people who came across them. This light hearted idea would certainly bring a bit of humour and joy into someone’s day. Yarn bombing is a popular craze, but yarn bombing and impersonating nature is new to me. It almost feels like an egg hunt, encouraging the viewer to take themselves out into nature to try and find these wooly fungi and in the meantime explore and enjoy the outdoors.
