Featured on BBC Breakfast with Carol Kirkwood on the 22nd of December 2015.
Knitmas was an installation that aimed to raise awareness about homeless and poverty at Christmas, as well as across the rest of the year. By holding the event in the Winchester Churches Night Shelter and involving ex-residents in a night of knitting and jamming, our goal was to break down barriers and challenge stereotypes.
As a part of the Woolly Hat Fair 2015, from 1 – 24 December at 5pm, a door opened somewhere in the city, behind which a small moment of magic took place. There were performances, exhibitions, installations, weird and wonderful happenings, story-telling, puppetry, and all sorts of things to join in with – a festive lucky dip!
