The Big Knit – Batley Library and Town Centre

June 8, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us in Batley to see our waterways themed sculpture made by the people of Kirklees, in collaboration with Yorkshire Sculpture Park resident artist Connor Shields, and proudly displayed in Batley Town Centre!

Join us in the town centre, just outside the library, and don’t forget you can bring a knitted blue scarf or a pom-pom to add to our display. Advice and instructions on how to do this can be found on the main BIG KNIT page

The whole day will be a celebration of the waterways of Yorkshire, with a collaborative centrepiece that will be created with the support of Connor Shields (YSP resident artist) so grab your blue wool and get stuck in.

We are hugely grateful for the help of the following schools who have been working hard to bring this to life – come check it out on Saturday the 8th!
