ArtYarn invite you to knit or crochet decorative strips of yarn for the instillation ‘Yarn Forward’ at the Manchester Craft and Design Centre.

To accompany the UK Craft Mafia’s exhibition, ArtYarn will be installing a yarn wrapping round the 1st Floor banister of the Manchester Craft and Design Centre to celebrate the many versatilities and techniques of knitting and crochet from around the world.



How to take part:

    * Knit or crochet your knitted strip to measure 7cm wide x 40 cm long. Any colour, yarn and technique is accepted, the brighter and wackier, the better.

    * Write us a small note stating your name and location. Each knitted strip will house a small label stating the maker’s details.

    * Send in your yarn strips to the following address (or drop them off in person to the craft centre office on the 1st floor) :



Manchester Craft and Design Centre
17 Oak Street,
Northern Quarter

Manchester,
M4 5JD
England UK


Deadline to receive yarn strips: 25th April 2009

If you would like your yarn strips to appear as part of the instillation for the UK Craft Mafia’s exhibition-opening event, please make and send them to us by March 17th 2009.

Happy Knitting & Crocheting.
