Is it just me or is Birmingham loving, and seems to be bloody good at, knitting?
Well those merry chap and chapettes recently did a project called Knit 2 Together commissioned by Kalaboration (a joint celebration of the 2012 Olympic Games and 50th Anniversary of Jamaican independence) to decorate the pillars outside the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. They did not do it on their own though, along with Birmingham’s Craftspace, over 400 individuals form around Birmingham took part in dressing the BMAG.
On Thursday 13th September there will be a chance to find out everything you wanted to know about this project by attending a conversation between Stitches and Hos Sara Fowles and Craftspace‘s Director Deirdre Figueiredo, which will be at the school of Art in Birmingham starting at 6pm.
