Thanks to everyone who came along to the Stitched Science event this weekend. We had a ball and hope you did too. We’ve gathered together a few pictures to give those that couldn’t make it a flavour of the event.
The most popular activity, even among people completely new to the world of wool, was knitting a Mars Martian to be stuck on the knitted planet Mars.
Getting people’s creations up on the planets provided a bit of a spectacle. We had a few attachment issues with plastic bag yarn continents falling off but we got there in the end.
The cross stitch was also really interesting with Colin and Jamie (Mr X Stitch) displaying some of their work which included cross stitched Pokemon characters and cross stitch graffiti.
When it came to communicating science, both Woolly Thoughts (maths and illusion knitting) and Knit a Neurone (neuroscience) had a great response from visitors. It really engaged people and got people talking about scientific subjects in a very different way.
If you came along let us know what you thought…
