Making the connection: Our 2019 tree jumper trends
SOME clear trends emerged as the tree jumpers went up for this year's Jumpers and Jazz festival today, influenced by the versatile theme 'Connect'.
Many artists interpreted the theme literally by linking elements using creative chains, French knitting and puzzle pieces.
Others took a more metaphorical approach, clearly feeling the love with plenty of love hearts integrated into the artwork, symbolising connections between people.
Several savvy artists found incredible ways to turn trash into treasure, and some, last year's artwork into fresh creations.
The traditional tree jumper staples of colour, flowers, pom poms and cute creatures of all descriptions - caterpillars, bees, snails and butterflies - again brought the tree jumpers to life this year.
