Running from 28 January to 10 March is Jay Hudson’s exhibition covering her “Knit-a-year”. During 2011 she knitted part of a continuous piece every day, using yarns which were recycled, upcycled or donated. There is more information on this website. As well as showing the whole piece (all 7.5 metres of it!) Jay has created a fun exhibition with knitting needles, balls of yarn, and extracts from her journals. Jay is a carer, and she is also showing posters for Waltham Forest Carers Association who helped her through the ups and downs of her knitting year.
Here are a few snaps of her show. As ever it looks much better in the flesh – get down to Church Lane before 10 March to have a look and pore over the artwork!
An overview of the exhibition, but do go down and look at it in detail yourself
The main piece – all the knitting, with annotations and tags when you see it close up.
The journals and knitting equipment.
It’s a really fun show with a serious (caring) message. If you’re in Leytonstone, do have a look!
