October 15-15 Operation Homespun
The Anna Templeton Centre for Craft Art and Design has thrown down the thrummed gauntlet - they are challenging knitters to enter a contest, creating contemporary work using traditional knitting patterns from Newfoundland and Labrador as the influence. Operation Homespun is the contest, held in co-operation with the Craft Council Gallery, where an exhibit of the created work will be held.
All work should show the influence of the book, Operation Homespun, a collection of traditional Newfoundland and Labrador knitting patterns printed by the Centre in the `80’s and reprinted again recently.
Susan Furneaux and Shirley Scott have laid out the pattern for the contest. They both teach at the Anna Templeton Centre.
Mack Furlong visited with Susan and Shirley at the Centre this week.
