A new pop-up hand-crafted word is set to become the next temporary art installation along the canal.
After the success of #SWINGIEST which was installed for 5 months on the original stone aqueduct in Barton until recently, the Bridgewater Knitters are embarking on a new piece.
Rachael Elwell of ArtYarn has designed patterns inspired by the heritage of the canal - its architecture, stonemasons' marks and landscape. Each pattern is knitted into a small square and each square is the sewn up to cover 4ft high wooden letters which are going to spell #FLOATIEST.
We are looking for knitters to help with the creation of the squares so please come along to Smith's Restaurant, 1-3 Church Road, Eccles, M30 0DL each Friday in May from 10:30am - 12:30pm. All yarn is provided and everyone is welcome.
For more information please get in touch or call Kate 07966 316446.
