Knit the Walls is back!
Sarah Filmer’s ‘knit the walls’ is an ongoing project with participants of all ages and backgrounds, who in regular social knitting sessions at GHT have produced a woollen version of Southampton’s medieval city walls.
You are invited to come knitting, and consider these lost day-to-day histories. This is not an archival endeavour, but a wondering endeavour – can we make connections with folk of the past through our actions now, today?
As we talk and wonder and ‘knit the walls’, a soft, warm, protective, functional, decorative record of knitters today grows ever larger, holding in its stitches the time and relations of its makers, as the old walls hold energies and records of the public of the city’s past.
All materials will be supplied.
Saturday July 11th 12-4pm.
It’s free to take part, no booking required, just turn up!
