It’s been a long time

It really has been a long time since I wrote a blog post here.  I’ve been wearing my Stitches and Hos hat for most of this year and what a year it’s turning out to be.

First off I’ve been commissioned by Wolverhampton Art Gallery to help transform St Peters Gardens in Wolverhampton with knit graffiti.  The project called Park Your Yarn will be installed in the gardens from 21 April for 4 weeks. Over the past month I’ve been delivering a series of drop in knitting workshops around Wolverhampton getting people to help produce the knitting needed for the installation. Rachael and Cheryl from ArtYarn have also been giving crochet workshops as part of the project.

Secondly I’m proud to announce my latest project with Stitches and Hos K2TOG - Knit 2 Together. For this I am planning to cover the columns on the outside of Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery in knitting to celebrate the arrival and stay of the Jamaican and American Olympic teams to Birmingham.  Six colours (red, white, blue, yellow, black and green) will be used to create the installation. The colours are taken from both teams’ national flags and are also used on the Olympic rings log.

The project has been selected for a Kalaboration commission which I’m very excited about.

Right now the project is trying to raise £2500 to help pay for a pop up shop in the Mailbox, Birmingham.  The shop will be a relaxing drop-in space where anyone can come to contribute to the piece and find out about the project. Staff will be on hand to teach basic knitting skills and local workers can pop-in over their lunch hour or after work to knit a square or just a few rows.

To support the project by donating as little as £1 please visit the Sponsume website
