Our Knitted Story – 6th June 2015 – 5th July 2015
Worked as project co-ordinator on this year-long research project which culminated in an exhibition at Charnwood Museum, Loughborough.
The use of the word ‘Knitted’ in the title of the project deliberately refers to its other meaning as a term to describe unity, coming together, becoming closer and bonding.
The focus of the project was personal histories of hand-crafting and how it brings together stories and memories of knitting, crocheting and other textile based activities from the local community. With items and quotes both from people who are members of groups and people who craft alone.
