Christmas comes early as The Knitivity returns to Gloucester Cathedral

GRCC's Knitivity will be making an early appearance at Gloucester Cathedral on Friday 1st September as part of a free event showing that creativity, making and crafting are fun and effective ways to mental health and well-being and to alleviate social isolation.  

"Knit and Natter" groups from Winchcombe, Roots Cafe Gloucester, and St Andrews Knitters will be there knitting, displaying their work and giving visitors a chance to try this sociable craft.  Animal characters from the Knitivity will also be on display and visitors can vote for the next knitted animal to join the scene.

There will be drop-in textile art activities with textile artist Liz Robertson, demonstrations in resin jewellery from Cath Ford, and flower arrangements being created by the Cathedral's Flower Guild volunteers.  In the Chapter House will be a Lifting the Blues pop up cafe with music performed by Patsy Gamble and John Broomhall, along with cakes from The Hub Bistro.
