Make a Noise for Knitting!

When – Saturday 19th of September from 12 - 12.30

Where - @scotfishmuseum on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

This autumn and winter we will be turning our minds to all things warm and WOOLLY as we celebrate the artful tradition of gansey-knitting in Scotland.

So for Go Industrial Day put your baaaaaack into it and make some noise for ganseys!

Join us online as we tell the story of their origins, purpose and unique patterns to unravel the strong connection between traditional knitting and the Scottish fishing industry.

This is a taster for our Knitting the Herring events programme which will include a combination of virtual webinars, online knitting demonstrations, talks and knit-alongs, storytelling and a Knitted Shoal Exhibition - all to be revealed soon!

Our partner museums at Go Industrial will be active online throughout the day - join in the fun at:
