Get Involved - The Big Knit

Lets get down to the knitty gritty!

We need people to start knitting and crocheting for The Big Knit right NOW!

Whether you want to start something in your local library, village hall or your front room, we would love to hear from you. We are inviting people all over Kirklees to take part in Worldwide Knit in Public Day, by joining in with activities run by people from their local community.

The Big Knit is an opportunity to share skills, get creative and have a cuppa, no matter what your age or background. It will see the whole of Kirklees work together to decorate their local area with yarn bombing and add to an impressive sculptural spectacle that will be revealed on the 8th June at a secret location.

If you have a general enquiry about The Big Knit please contact Anna and Lily anna_lily@hatchprojects.org.uk

If you already have a plan or if you are a keen knitter but just need some help planning an event please fill in our expression of interest form below…

This information will be shared with HATCH (WOVEN curators) and Kirklees Council Creative Economy Team. It will only be used to get in touch with you about Big Knit opportunities at WOVEN and will not be passed to any other parties, within or outside HATCH or Kirklees Council.
