Knit at the Museum: All Stitched Up at the Hunterian
Posted by Deadly Knitshade on May 20, 2010
Stitching comes in many forms from the crafty to the medical and they’re not as far apart as you think.
To prove that crafters could get their surgical suturing on Stitch London teamed up with the surgical sorts at the Hunterian Museum to see if folks were up for knitting and stitching amongst the bottled bodies and bones.
It turned out that they were, and they arrived in their hundreds to do so.
Here’s a peek at the All Stitched Up at the Hunterian, a proper Knit at the Museum if ever there was one.
It was possibly the most fun you can have in a room full of bits of people’s innards and various floating deceased animals. The Hunterian is a fascinating, fun and rather icky in a good way.
Thanks to the folks at the Hunterian for inviting us along. Also a HUGE thanks to all the Stitch Londoners who helped us teach the knitting masses.
We’re hoping to go back to the Hunterian again if you missed out. Gerty is pining for her new found friend already. So if you missed out we’ll stitch there again.
