Fol­low­ing his close shave, a su­per-sized Shaun has been be­decked in three-di­men­sional freestyle cro­chet by artist Vicky Har­ri­son of Pa­per Vil­lage Arts. She’s cre­ated the sculp­ture as part of the Shaun in the City trail that will see 70 dec­o­rated Shauns around Bris­tol from 6 July to Mon­day 31 Au­gust, be­fore be­ing auc­tioned to raise money for The Grand Ap­peal char­ity. Her gi­ant cro­chet Shaun will be on dis­play in St Ni­cholas mar­ket through­out the event.

Vicky used about 30 tech­niques to cre­ate her Woolly Won­der­land sculp­ture. ”My Shaun sculp­ture took 561 hours to make – a real cro­chet marathon,” says Vicky. “I made him to show the ver­sa­til­ity of cro­chet and how it can be de­vel­oped. I love the fact that you can work in any di­rec­tion and use any kind of yarn. I want him to in­spire peo­ple to cro­chet and to ex­per­i­ment.” A For more in­for­ma­tion about Shaun in the City, visit www.shauninthecity.org.uky g
