Saturday 30th July
The Gallery of Costume, Platt Hall, Rusholme, Mannchester
Get out your surrealist sun-cream, it’s hot enough to celebrate Elsa Schiaparelli (who features in a scorchingly stylish exhibition at the Gallery of Costume) and her collaborations with Salvador Dali! Let’s escape the mundane, worship the weird and drift in dreamscapes as we create our own surrealist masterpieces! We will make extraordinary lobster claw mittens as we have a look at the fantastic results of their collaboration.
All materials will be provided but if you want to bring your own, you’ll need sets of 3.5mm and 3.75mm dpns plus 2 holding dpns of a similar size and approx 135 m of aran weight yarn in pink, brown or blue, depending on if you like your lobster cooked or not!
Close Knit is a friendly, free adult group. Do come along!
