Throughout June visitors to York Minster’s Dean’s Park will be able to enjoy our mini knitted nature trail, thanks to a partnership with local craft community the York KnitWits.

The Minster's first yarn storming installation is now up in the park, which runs along the north side of the cathedral, and features knitted, crocheted and cross-stitched animals and plants – from wild flowers and fairies to bugs and woodland creatures.

The York KnitWits is a York craft community where people who love to knit, crochet and cross-stitch can meet other crafting enthusiasts. The group supports local charities by knitting and crocheting items for those in need and holds yarn storms – where handmade woollen items are used to create street art - throughout the year to entertain York’s residents and visitors.
