This June we’re teaming up with Stitch London to stitch all things science…
Last year the Stitch London crew came to the Museum to create their stitched selves in our Who am I? gallery about brain science and genetics.
This year we’re thinking even bigger – Stitch London are going to help us stitch the world’s largest handmade stitched solar system.
Plus they will be creating lots of stitched science specimens – anything from stitched skulls and stethoscopes to James Watt and Einstein. Tiny stitched Professor Brian Cox anyone?
The Stitch London team are already busy stitching away as but they can’t do it all on their own - they’ll need your help. From pom pom planet rings to knitting a giant Jupiter, your skills are needed to help create this piece of art.
Can’t stitch or knit? Don’t worry! The Stitch London experts will be running a number of workshops over both days to help you master the science of knitting. Learn the ‘knitting jenny’ technique, create a Mars martian and discover how to turn a plastic bag into yarn for our planet Earth. Find out more about the events.
And on that note we’re on the hunt for green and blue plastic bags - if you have any unwanted ones please send them to Stitch London at the address below:

The event will be on the 25 and 26 of June – hope to see you there.
