Thursday 26th September 2-5pm at Purl City Yarns (62 Port St, Manchester, M1 2EQ)

Fancy having a go on a knitting machine, or discussing the possibilities of digital imaging and stocking stitch? Come along and meet myself and Iris from the NEPHRA Knit and Natter group, New Moston. We’re starting a dedicated Machine Knitting group in October, and we’re keen to encourage some new faces to come join us.

Purl City Yarns have kindly allowed us to set up a couple of machines upstairs for the afternoon on the 26th, so that anyone can drop in and find out more and also try their hand. Looking forward to meeting you!

FILM – Knit and Natter

September 5, 2013 | By | No Comments

The NEPHRA Knit and Natter group is based in New Moston, North Manchester. I began making this film last year, but only found time to edit it recently. What I’ve tried to do is give a sense of knitting the film together, by using four interviews and stitching together discussion of techniques and personal gripes, so that the final piece is an absurd narrative created through structure. It’s quite a formal approach to film-making, but I think it works well in this case, giving a feel of the knitting group, rather than an factual overview of it.
