Jumpers and Jazz in July began in 2004 inspired by the Warwick Art Gallery’s idea to personalize the cold winter streets with textile art wrapped around our bare winter trees.
The quirky “tree jumper” project captured the imagination of the local community and the event grew into the ten day arts festival that we now enjoy. Lovely traditional textile crafts such as crochet, felting, dollmaking and weaving have prospered as a result of being applied in a popular contemporary context. Recycled materials are also used with wonderful creativity and cleverness.
Warwick Art Gallery continues to manage the yarn bombed tree exhibition. In 2023 the exhibition starts on Thursday 20 July and continues until Sunday 30 July.
Anyone can enter and many locals put on their artistic hat for this one event every year. It is a wonderful way to add to your festival experience – become a tree jumper artist!
The reason the festival began and continues to attract thousands of visitors, the yarnbombed trees are delightful creations custom made each year to wrap a tree. Proudly presented
by Warwick Art Gallery.
