NOW LATER KNIT-IN

An evening of workshops celebrating knit, crochet and community, in aid of Craft Forward’s Blankets for Lambeth initiative.

Craft Forward partnered with NOW Gallery, London based knit collective Black Girl Knit Club and crochet artist Kimberley Cookey-Gam (crochetcookey)  for an evening of workshops exploring the craft of knit and crochet in response to Matty Bovan’s 2022 Fashion Commission Ribbons

As part of the sessions, visitors were invited to knit or crochet a square, to be assembled on-site into blankets for people experiencing homelessness, in partnership with our Blankets for Lambeth initiative.

Workshops were open to all abilities, from complete beginners to knitting pros. All tools and materials were provided in sponsorship with Wool and The Gang. Music by Social Records Society.
