The Big Knit

The Big Knit is coming to Kirkwood! Join us on Saturday 8th June 2019 from 10am until 4pm in partnership with The Coffee Creative and WOVEN in Kirklees for a giant Knit & Natter!

The Big Knit is an opportunity for us to share skills, get creative and have a cuppa, by joining in with events run in our local area. The day will see the whole of Kirklees work together to make impressive knitted creations called yarn bombs.
