To celebrate the final week of Soft Sculpture, the National Gallery of Australia will hold the Knitta Please festival.
Founded in 2005 in Austin, Texas, Knitta Please is a tag crew of knitters who turned their frustration with their half-finished knitting projects into a phenomenon sweeping the world.
From 7 to 12 July the Gallery be transformed with knitting. Magda Sayeg, founder of Knitta Please and Sydney artist Denise Litchfield will transform the front entrance and foyer of the Gallery. Knitters are invited to help create squares of knitting for the coverings.
