We’re off to Walsall to create some knitted chaos as part of Making Do. It’s a free event – yes free with lots of stuff going on. See below for more details. Hopefully we’ll see you there
A free late night event on Thursday 7 May, 6pm – 9pm
The New Art Gallery Walsall in partnership with 7inch Cinema and Capsule want to take you on a magical journey back to the 1950s with an evening event of listening, viewing, drinking and doing on Thursday 7 May, 6pm – 9pm. Inspired by Britain’s make-and-mend post-war spirit, the event brings together screenings of short films, live music performances courtesy of Pram (Domino Records), July Skies and The Winter League, workshops and activities and a nostalgic and street party atmosphere throughout the award winning building!
Trevor Woolery will be running an animation workshop at the art library and people’s animated stories and characters will be instantly projected onto the wall and become part of an animation story.
Sara Fowles from Stitches and Hos, an organisation that is outing knitting from the private domain to the public realm, will be showcasing the art of knitting and will be inviting people to join her and create anything from socks to scarves.
Alongside the free food and refreshments that we will be offering that night, our visitors will also have the opportunity to decorate their own cake, with patterns, shapes and colours of their choice.
