We have invited Bridport to knit a picnic with lots of yummy food and a knitted checked tablecloth with 6 inch red and white squares.
Please deliver all knitted picnic items to Bridport Art Centre.
They have wool, patterns and needles.
Please make work to scale and be aware that lots of small children visit the exhibition so please think a bit about health and safety issues - beads and pins etc.
We have added a knitting circle and children's play area which we hope people we use on a daily basis.
Open Knit: Every Saturday, 12-2pm. All welcome. with the Bridport Bag ladies who are well known for their knitting with carrier bags.
The grapevine has gone up in a new form - trellis loaned by Groves Garden Centre in Bridport and beautifully installed by Suzanne and Stuart.
Big thanks to Bridport for inviting us. We had such a great time installing the knitted garden - everyone was so friendly and helpful it made it very easy work.
Many thanks to Polly Gifford the Art Centre Manager for inviting us and to her team.
We had 4 amazing volunteers helping us install -so BIG thanks to Kate, Viv, Hannah and Suzanne.
More photos to follow next week.
I am looking for a CD of birdsong as think it would be great to have it playing in the gallery - anyone in Bridport got one we can borrow?
There is a great 3 page article in August's The Dorset Magazine, price 2.75 from Smiths
