Images from Museum of the Strange, Edmund waller Primary School – knitting club with children. 2009
I ran a lunchtime knitting club with children, TA’s and parents. The Museum of the Strange was one of the first projects we did as I wanted to find a way for the children not to worry about lumpy, holey and wobbly knitting! We looked at how Darwin recorded new species that he’d discovered and knitted imaginary, hybrid creatures – the stranger the better, inventing Latin names and habitats for each specimen.
