The Knitting Project

A community public art project for Jackson Hole in which YOU can participate! I conjured this fun, collaborative project to forge new multi-generational interactions. Your help in knitting embellishments for bronze animal statues in town is wanted. There will be lessons if you want to learn how to knit. Fun and socializing for all ages! This is not just women’s or girl’s work. Men and boys are encouraged to get involved.

  1. Can’t make the informational meeting but would love to participate. Are there going to be patterns? Where can I get one? Are we gathering to knit the projects at a regular time?
    Let me know what to do, where to go, and when….sounds like fun!!!

    thanks, polly

    • Hi Polly,

      Good questions! Yes there will be “patterns” once decisions are made about what will be made for which animal. There will be some knitting sessions starting in mid September. I can send you details to your email address. Thank you for your interest and I look forward to having you be involved! Suzanne
