Creative Networking – Urban Kniting – Aruba Stones
Wednesday May 7th 2014
6:30 – 8:30pm, The Surrey Vaults, Bristol
Aruba wishing stones
In this workshop Ali Brown will help you create your own piece of knit graffiti and be a part of a ‘Knitiffi’ style installation. In Aruba, the Caribbean, a beach is full of stacks of rocks – there is an old island tradition where visitors and residents alike come to offer wishes for health, for wealth, and for happiness.Inspired by this tradition we will be adding some knit graffiti to our stones and building our own stacks full of wishes. Knit, crochet or embellish a pre -knitted panel and fit it to a stone and attach to it your wish culminating in an outdoor knitted art installation. This will be a time for creating, discussion and reflection and chance to experience being a part of a knitted community.
Creativity and communication will be encouraged throughout and you’ll have the chance to freely network with a group of like-minded professionals. No previous knitting experience necessary.
This event is part of a series of creative networking evenings please sign up to the Bristol Arts and Health Forum Blog to keep updated.
