All out Crafter session dates have now passed but Jess will be putting up the knitting in Hockley Woods (just by the main Car Park) on Friday 1st June between 11am-1pm and you are welcome to come along to help or knit and chat as we go.
Are you a knitter or crocheter?
Would you like to share your skills with the next generation?
Then get involved in Knit-together!
Knit-together is a Rochford district project for anyone who knits or crochets and would like to pass on their skills. During May 2012 Jess Worley, a local textile artist, will be teaching young people how to knit and crochet and working with them to make artsworks for the Hockley Wild Woods festival. To support this activity we are looking for a team of crafters to join Jess to make this happen.
So if you’d like to contribute to a collaborative craft project (that will show at the Essex Olympics torch relay event), meet new people, share skills and do some making get involved in Knit-together! To find out more come along to the following free sessions listed below. At these knit-togethers we will be starting to make the yarn based artwork, getting to know one-another and chatting about the project. All yarns, needles, hooks, and a light lunch provided.
Rayleigh Windmill, Bellingham Lane, SS6 7ED
- Friday 27th April 2012 – 11.00-14.00
- Friday 4th May 2012 – 11.00-14.00
These FREE sessions are for knitters and crocheters of any level who would like to contribute to the knitted artwork and/or pass on their skills to young people during sessions in May 2012.
If you would like to come along you are welcome to just drop in but it would be great if you could let us know you are coming so we can get enough food!
