The Royal Agricultural Show Victoria (RASV)'s Art Craft and Cookery Pavilion is once again home to their Yarn Farm - a fun and fuzzy installation of fibreglass, farmyard animals that combine the themes of craft and country in yarn-bombed splendour.
Victorian schools are invited to ‘adopt’ an animal in the lead-up to show and give them a crafty coat that they can parade during the Royal Melbourne Show 2016. Teachers can get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org and request to pick up a classroom pet for a wonderful group activity. There are 12 animals of various sizes available cows, rams, pigs, dog, goat, and several hens. Please note that transportation is at the school’s expense and that animals are close to life-size (most can fit easily into the back of a car – except the cows which require special transport).
