street art in Eupen

Nowadays formerly major stations of the once world-famous wool processing and textile industry in our region are not really visible any more.  Therefore the Maria-Montessorie-Comprehensive-School Aachen is planning a special textile installation in Eupen.

In cooperation with the Aachen artist & designer Patricia Yasmine Graf 8 students in the age from 12-14 crocheted one week together. Thick colored wool transformed into funnel-shaped structures. These are mounted street art like at historic places.

The wool is growing in form of colorful tentacles on the facades and buildings, which were once important in the textile industry. New visibility arises and is making curious about the exciting history of our region.

A project in cooperation with world-wide-wool.net.
