Calling all knitters for upcoming exhibition

KNITTING enthusiasts are invited to take part in an upcoming exhibition.

Follow The Herring is a nationwide project that will journey down the east coast of the UK and come to rest in Hastings at the end of July. Focusing on a shared maritime heritage, the tour combines performance, song and visual arts and offers opportunities for local people to get involved.

The exhibition part of the project centres around a boat with a ‘knitted coat’. Local knitters and eager-to-learn knitters will be able to take part in eight open sessions to help create further knitted items to add to the exhibition including a knitted fish and chip booth and yarn bombing around The Stade area.

Sessions will introduce new techniques such as finger knitting, extreme knitting, knitting with unusual materials such as plastic or rope and net making with local fishermen. Sessions will be suitable for experienced knitters and beginners alike.

Anyone interested should attend the Call For Knitters event on April 12 from noon at The Stade Hall. This project is supported by Hastings Borough Council and Parrabbola Arts.
