Short trot through external projects last autumn.
In September I joined in with Growing Hearts and Minds Tree cosy project for B-Arts Harvest production,
Led by Rachel Grant we knitted multicoloured strips to sew together round a nice tree near the bowling pavilion in Northwood Park, Hanley.
This was done over several afternoons knitting and chatting, almost more important to the artist than the physical project was the sharing of stories and experiences that happens when a group make something communally, also the passing on of making skills - I had not knitted properly for nearly 40 years.
Some of the completed strips:
