A FLOCK OF BENCHES
20 SEPTEMBER - 1 OCTOBER 2010
For Nest eight Salon Benches that have been made by knitting groups from across the UK will be exhibited.
Each Salon Bench has been made collectively made by groups in Milton Keynes, Northampton, Devon, Bristol, London, Birmingham, Talgarth, and Newcastle-Gateshead. Using selected fleeces and uniquely spun yarns, each group has worked with an artist to personalise their benches by applying a variety knitting and felting techniques.
