A History of Knitting

  • Location: Gorton Community Center

A necessity, an art, a form of meditation. From 10th century Egyptian artisans to the online hobbyist forums of today, knitting has been a treasured part of the human experience. Explore the changes in the craft as it spread around the world and evolved alongside fashions, always reflecting the cultures and needs of makers.

 

Presenter Liz Kristan blends historical images, antique items, and handmade recreations to explore the little known secrets of knitting.
