In collaboration with artists from Glassball
Did you know that Ruddington was known as the Diamond Village because of the patterns on the socks that were made here in framework knitting days?
In celebration of our amazing heritage, the Framework Knitters Museum invites you to get creative – we want you to work with us to create “The Ruddington Great Exhibition of 2021”.
We’ll be playing with scale, pattern, code, art, history and sound to produce unique experiences and artworks that tell your story of Ruddington – The Diamond Village.
Would you like to create soundscapes that tell the story of our village? Do you want to make edible artworks? How about making diamond artworks to display in your window? Or what about knitting with LEDs?
Knitting is coding and yarn is a programmable material. What if you could write a piece of code today that could be read, understood, and executed thousands of years in the future? Well, that’s just what we’ll be doing! Let’s create patterns for future generations.
There are activities for all ages and abilities and no previous experience is required.
All events will be free and there’s a mixture of activities you can do outdoors or at home.
