In the loop : knitting past, present and future

Nostalgia & Renewal Symposia
Two linked study days are planned at the Winchester School of Art, England and the Edinburgh College of Art, Scotland around the themes of nostalgia, followed by renewal, in June and July. The two events are inspired, in part, by the three-day conference In the Loop, held in the summer of 2008, which explored contemporaryknitting practice from a number of disciplinary perspectives. The experience of organising In the Loop led us to the theme of nostalgia, an inevitable but complex contributor to the surge of popularity that knitting is currently enjoying. Keen to break the conventional pattern of conferences, two smaller events of a more experimental nature – nostalgia & renewal – are now on the calendar.

July 24 @ Edinburgh College of Art (renewal)For bookings please contact Jessica Hemmings 0131 221 6199 / £35 per day includes lunch. Concessions available £20 per day.
