A Knitted Harvest

Last week Stitches and Hos created a window installation as part of Unique in Birmingham, a project designed to improve the street scene around the city centre’s shopping area.  9 finalists have been selected and each one given an empty shop unit window to create an installation on the theme Unique in Birmingham.

Our window ‘A Knitted Harvest’, is a celebration of the Birmingham Bull Ring Markets. The markets are a fantastic resource for makers and keen cooks like myself or for those just looking for a retail experience outside of the high street. 

Our window is located in Burlington Arcade off New Street and will be in place until the end of the year.  You can also walk the trail and visit all 9 windows by downloading a map here

A big thanks to Helen, Lilith and Venetia for helping to knit and crochet all of the items.  Another big thanks to Lauren for fabricating the market stall and to the ever wonderful Katja Ogrin for taking photos. Here are some images of the finished piece.
