Knitting the Herring: Talk and Knit Along with Heritage Crafts Association

A talk hosted by the Scottish Fisheries Museum, presented by Mary Lewis from HCA to launch our Knitting the Herring Events programme and discuss why gansey knitting will continue to be a prominent and relevant heritage craft within the knitting community. Mary will speak on various aspects of gansey knitting, issues affecting intangible heritage and the Endangered Crafts Fund offered by the Heritage Crafts Association.

If you wish and are able, you can knit along with your own ganseys or winter warmers and perhaps share what you have been working on with everyone! So get the kettle on and tune in to join us as we embark on our Knitting the Herring journey!
