Knitted Newbury comes to the Greenham Common Control Tower!
About the Exhibit
A community project by 20 talented local knitters has produced a colourful pictorial representation of Newbury and its surroundings. Historic buildings, such as St Nicholas Church, the Corn Exchange and Shaw House can be found.
The main feature of the exhibition is the wall hanging, which measures 2.5m by 1.5m, representing more than a thousand hours of knitting and sewing. There will be supporting information explaining how this all came together.
The knitters are already working on their next project of three panels (triptych) showing various aspects of the history and life at Greenham Common, which will hang in the cafeteria at the Control Tower.
