A friendly free knitting group with needles, patterns and yarn provided, but bring your own if you prefer.
GO WILD THIS AUTUMN! This month’s Close Knit session will be inspired by animal prints in the Gallery’s collection and fashion more widely. We will be looking at how animal skins have influenced fashion through the years, from the wardrobes of Lauren Bacall to Bet Lynch, and how our attitudes’ have changed towards wearing furs as the impact of campaigns against the practice gained influence.
Lots of laughs making both knitted and crocheted flowers, some bigger than others!
