Learn to knit with complex colourways using Kirk Dunn’s, actor and writer of the The Knitting Pilgrim, innovative method for creating texture and depth, all in a relaxed social setting. Leave with a completed pin cushion based off of one of Kirk’s original designs.
An Intimate Dinner with Kirk Dunn:
Join us for our first ever Evening with an Artist Event. During this exclusive gathering, (there are only 18 spots available), participate in a talk with knitting artist Kirk Dunn while enjoying an incredible 3 course meal provided by Part II Bistro.
At the dinner Kirk will talk about his journey as a creator that began as a theatre artist but has evolved into using knitting to communicate and express his ideas.
The Knitting Pilgrim Performance:
A one-man play & talkback about the artistic and spiritual journey of Kirk Dunn, who took 15 years to knit a triptych of tapestries, designed in the style of stained glass windows, exploring the commonalities and conflicts of the Abrahamic faiths. There is no other project like it in the world.
AND IT IS COMING TO BLYTH!
Written by Kirk & Claire Dunn, Directed by Jennifer Tarver.
BRING YOUR OWN KNITTING as knitting during the show it encouraged.
When: November 1st & 2nd
*Note – The Knitting Pilgrim tickets can be picked up at the FACTS Gallery and Creative Space at 441 Queen Street in Blyth or starting one hour before the show at the FACTS table in the foyer of the theatre.
