The Knit Club for Blankets for London in Brixton – 10th September
September 10, 2023, 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Knit Club is a workshop by Craft Forward structured like a relaxed and welcoming knitting and crochet group, open to beginners and experienced makers to come together, connect, learn more about the craft and its radical history. Knitters will be producing knitted squares to go towards the “Blankets for London” project.
“Blankets for London” is Craft Forward’s seasonal project where we assemble blankets to donate to homeless individuals in London through our partner charities.
The Knit Club is open to anyone interested in approaching crafting and textile art for the first time and to any creative who would like an opportunity to make together and connect with other makers.
What to bring: all materials are provided! If you are an experienced knitter please bring your own knitting needles (and spare yarn if you have any); if you are a beginner, come along and we will help you start your knitting journey! If you’re a crocheter, come with your favourite hook, or you can borrow one from us!
I want to participate in “Blankets for London”: our mailbox is now open for Blankets for London 2023.
What to send:
We are currently collecting yarn, 20×20 cm knitted or crocheted squares (ends weaved in please!) or already assembled blankets.

This year the deadline to post your squares and blankets is the 19th of November 2023.
Pictures will be taken during this session: please let us know if you’d rather not be photographed, we want to make sure everyone is comfortable.
The Knit Club 2023 is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.
