An invite to become part of knitted art

salonbench.jpgArt + knitting continues to pop up on the craft scene and prod you with a pair of DPNs till you take part. You are invited to join the fibre-fabulous folks at Prick Your Finger and their friends at the Shipley Art Gallery to take part in an interesting knitting art project.

The Gateshead Gallery opened its Craftivism: Objects to Change the World exhibition on July 10th.

This exhibition combines historical and contemporary craft with craftivism, which reflects the different ways craft has been valued as a powerful force for social, political and personal change over the past 150 years.

Part of the show are benches, the concept of artist-curator Trevor Pitt and Kate Pemberton, knit in different areas of the country: London, Northampton, Devon and Talgarth.

If you're in the area drop by and knit a row or two in the name of art.
