Slip, the encore – New Brighton Library, Christchurch

sunday06

In July this year over 50 Christchurch knitters and crocheters collaborated on the Slip installation for the Christchurch Arts Festival.

Throughout the duration of the Festival, French-knitted vines wound their way up lamp posts in Cathedral Square, sprouting hundreds of crocheted leaves and flowers. The flowers were attached to the vines with brooch pins, so that passersby could “pick” them and wear them on a coat or scarf.

More than 1000 flowers and 40 metres of French knitting were created for the project, and if you missed seeing it in the Square, you can see some of these on display at New Brighton Library from 27 October till 9 November.

    I’m sad that it’s going to be all over by the time I next come to Christchurch. It looks so pretty!
