Ashland – “Guerilla yarn bombers” or “Wrappers,” as they call themselves in Ashland, recently created more art to bring surprise, wonder and color to another part of town.? Earlier this summer, artists wrapped lampposts in brightly colored yarn at the Ashland Public Library, 66 Front St.

This time, Ashland Creative artists Andrea Green, a mixed media artist; Cheryl Cohn, a mosaic artist; MR Fletcher, a jewelry designer and maker; and Cynthia Whitty, a writer, got help from a passer-by.? Guy Stuart, an artist from Framingham, usually spreads out canvases on his garage floor to work on large pieces. He was waiting for his wife to finish her shopping when he stopped to help with the wrapping.

Yarn bombers have stuck around the world, wrapping everything from bike racks to buses.

Green said, “People were really sad when I removed the yarn from the library. I told them to look around town for more surprise art.”

Ashland Creative, consisting of over 200 art enthusiasts, is planning several more public art installations this summer.
