jumper flyer final

Welcome to the Giant Jumper project!

This is a project to create a giant knitted jumper to be installed outside the main atrium of Southmead Hospital during the Fresh Arts Festival this October. The jumper will be created from a series of square patches made by patients and staff of the hospital and its wider community – working with artist Ali Brown. 

Alongside the knitted jumper there will be a selection of knitting stories collected over the course of the project which will be added to during the festival.

At the festival we want to bring together knitters involved in the project, knit groups and knitters of Bristol together to knit, meet and celebrate the therapeutic benefit of knitting. Keep an eye on the ‘knit groups’ page for dates and times to join us…

If you, your knit group or a knitter you know would like to be involved and contribute either a knitted square or knitting story it would be great to hear from you…
