The great Grant knit-a-thon


Grant Museum of Zoology | Rockefeller Building (link Map)
21 University Street | London | WC1E 6JJ | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Open

Inspired by artist Ruth Marshall’s knitted skin of a Tasmanian tiger, we have set the knitters of London the challenge of knitting the skins animals, in just 12 HOURS. Bring your knitting needles to stitch one, purl one for an hour over lunch or come after work and be inspired to join in over a glass of wine while you view the exhibition. Throughout the day hear from Strange Creatures co-curator Sarah Wade to find out how natural history museums can use contemporary art and craft to engage visitors.

This event is free and there is no need to book, drop in at any point over the day.

Part of UCL's Festival of the Arts.
