#reknitrevolution

Use your knitting skills to rework the knitwear in your wardrobe. Handmade or mass-produced, chunky or fine: every stitch is a unit of possibility, ripe for reconfiguration.

Reknit Revolution is a project by designer, maker and researcher Amy Twigger Holroyd. Visit the exhibition Units of Possibility: The Reknit Revolution at Rugby Art Gallery & Museum from 24 June to 2 September 2017 to experience Reknit Revolution in person, or find out more about the project here.
