Post Digital Knit 4 May – 12 June 2019

“Post Digital Knit”, an installation by Dr Elizabeth Gaston and Dr Jane Scott, will be on displayed, 4 May – 12 June 2019.   The exhibition includes designs exploring the art and science of knitting.

As part of the Fish and Ships festival, join Dr Liz Gaston on Saturday 18 May for a drop in workshop, inspired by the fishing nets used in the fishing industry and focussing on sustainability.

Participants will be introduced to a large scale, hand loop construction process, learning this family friendly technique then contributing to the creation of a rapidly growing, large scale, temporary structure. 

At the end of the day this fishing net inspired construction will be displayed as a temporary public art installation in the Pannett Gallery, to be on display through the rest of the weekend.

Drop in to the workshop and stay for as long or as short a time as you want, 10.30 – 12.30 and 1 – 3.

Dr Liz Gaston is Senior Teaching Fellow and BA Textile Design Programme Manager at the University of Leeds.
