During the first wave of the coronavirus we saw of
Teddy Bears everywhere. The new waves of community spirit, popping up around the
country are gaggles of spoons, adorned with googly eyes, pipe-cleaner arms and
feather hats. Creating these spoon villages or “Spoonvilles”is a lockdown craze
for kids and adults alike.
All you need to start one is some publicly accessible
land, a sign reading “Spoonville” and a character or two. It’s then up to
others in the neighbourhood to make their own cutlery and join the
Seen in Mort Bay Park, Balmain.
