Knit New Lanark - SCOTLAND IN SIX
Tue 18 April 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
Yarnbombers, guerrilla knitters and crochet hookers will descend on New Lanark to yarnbombing the traditional social hub of the village – the Institute! Experts, beginners and those who are simply wool-curious are invited to drop in throughout the day and enjoy the festivities.
Throughout the course of the day, we’ll add more and more to the yarnbomb site, creating a very different view of this iconic venue. A variety of free textile and knitting workshops will also take place on the day, with complimentary treats kindly provided by Border Biscuits. Keep your eyes on this page for more information.
Participants of all ages can either knit in advance and bring their creations, or use the colourful New Lanark woollen yarn which will be provided at the venue. If you can’t make it to the event, but would still like to contribute your knitting, we’d still love to hear from you! Please contact email@example.com for more information.
In the run up to the event, New Lanark will also running a range of World Heritage Day activities, including a “Scanathon” and archaeological dig.
SCOTLAND IN SIX
All of the action will be documented on social media throughout the day and you’re invited to join in with #ScotlandinSix.
