The Big Knit
June 8 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
On the 8th of June 2019, people all over Kirklees will be celebrating World Wide Knit in Public Day with THE BIG KNIT.
The Big Knit is an opportunity for us all to share skills, get creative and have a cuppa, by joining in with events run in our local area. It will see the whole of Kirklees work together to make impressive knitted spectacles called yarn bombs, that will fill the streets with colour. The whole day will be a celebration of the waterways of Yorkshire, so grab your blue wool and get stuck in. Want to take part? We love for you to join in. Whether you want to start something in your local library, village hall or your front room, we would love to hear from you.
THE BIG KNIT IS PART OF WOVEN, A CELEBRATION OF INNOVATION IN TEXTILES ACROSS KIRKLEES, TAKING PLACE FROM SATURDAY 8TH TO SUNDAY 16TH JUNE.
Lets get down to the knitty gritty! If you already have a plan you can submit your event to firstname.lastname@example.org If you are a keen knitter but need some help planning an event please fill in our expression of interest form here. We will be running an introductory workshop for community champions on the 4th of May in Huddersfield. Free downloadable knitting templates coming soon.
