September’s Upcoming Session

Hi folks! It’s September’s session this Saturday, so why not come along? ‘In Stitches’ is guaranteed to cheer us up after all this rain! We’ll be having some daft notions and treating ourselves by making some bits and bobs for our knitting bags. We’ll also be displaying some notions and knitting equipment from the collection. If you have any interesting treasures or gadgets you couldn’t do without, why not bring them along?

Also, we’re excited to have two Indian artists joining us for the session. They are here for a residency project and their work will be displayed in the space where we hold the knitting workshop. Lokesh is more conceptual in his work and designs printed clothing, flags and other items. He’s been inspired by cotton related histories and collections in the NorthWest. The other artist, Shamji, is a weaver and again he works in cotton. Both artists are keen to meet local people to develop their practice and share their passion for craft. I’m sure it will be really interesting to meet them and see their work.Image
