Summertime Woolly Mammoth

To celebrate World Wide Knit in Public Day, Prema warmly invites you to join effervescent resident artist Emma Leith and a merry throng of knitters, felters and crocheters to pick up your hook or needles and set-to, creating pompoms and a range of crafted flowers and foliage whilst sitting in Prema’s garden – our south-facing suntrap.

Feel free to bring along a picnic lunch with you or there’ll be plenty of delicious fodder to fuel your crafting available from Vestry Café (as well as fortifying coffees, teas and much cakeage).

Today is ideal for those with all levels of experience in knitting, crochet and felting – just bring along your yarn and implement of choice.

For those totally new to it all, there’ll be plenty of people around to help if you get stuck or even fancy giving yarn-crafting for the very first time. Do join us for a relaxing and informal summertime session.

We hope that all leaves and flowers created during the event will be used to yarn-bomb specific areas of the arts centre as a lasting memento of our crafting picnic.

Look forward to seeing you!
