To celebrate the arrival and stay of the Jamaican and American Olympic teams in Birmingham for London 2012, Sara Fowles (long running Supersonic artist liaison, many of you will have also met this lovely lady on the door of many a Capsule gig) and Stitches and Hos will cover with knit graffiti the columns on the exterior of Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. A palette of six colours (red, blue, white, yellow, green and black) will be used to create the installation. The palette is derived from the colours used on both teams national flags and are also the same colours used in the Olympic rings logo.
To help finance this project the team guerilla knitting team are trying to raise £2500 to pay for activity in a pop up shop located in the Pavilions. The shop will be a relaxing central hub where anyone can come and contribute to the project by knitting a square or even a few rows. There will also be staff on hand to teach you the basics if you can’t already knit.
