I spent yesterday afternoon helping to make a wall of seaweed! The wall is going to be just one element in a fantastic knitted installation of Portsmouth’s skyline, a project which has had a worldwide reach. Organised by Katrina Henderson and Jo Wright, this community based project has involved hundreds of people, who have knitted 1800 items for the seascape – including no less than 1000 fishes in many different colours! The photos below show you just a few of the beautiful things that generous people have given their time to knit. I can’t wait to see the finished piece, which will be on display at the National Museum of the Royal Navy in Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard very soon!
Gosh, that’s a great project.
There are boxes and boxes of fishes!
Wow, this is amazing, I love the idea of big projcts like this.
Its great to think that contributions have come from all over the world 🙂
I’m really excited to see the finished seascape!
What a fantastic project to be a part of, the work so far looks amazing! xx
The ladies are all great and I’ve been told some wonderful stories about their lives.
What a wonderful project!
You would love the crocheted jellyfish!
Oh yes! I am involved in a project at the moment with the Cambridge botanic gardens where we are doing something similar for an installation of crochet and knitted plants, flowers and lichen!
O my goodness that sounds amazing! Can’t wait to see photos of this 🙂
Wow that sounds amazing!
These are wonderful! Its an amazing project.
I’m going along this afternoon to do a bit more!
