The Knit Club for Blankets for London in Brixton – 14th July
July 14, 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Eventbrite has just recently changed its free policy on event capacity. If you have the means please choose a donation ticket as opposed to a free ticket when booking, to allow people on a low income to attend the event. Even £1 can make a difference and provide a space for someone.
If you can’t make the event anymore, please be sure to cancel your ticket in advance to give others a chance to attend.
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 closed and we will start collecting squares again later this year.
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.
