Experience the creation of a monumental soft sculpture, as thirty knitters work in unison to combine their thirty individual knit pieces into one. Fiber artist Karen Mallum of Ironwood has orchestrated this giant knitting circle, which she sees as symbolic of how people from different backgrounds and cultures can unite to work in harmony. Come and enjoy the sharing of stories and the click of needles in this modern take on an age old craft. E Pluribus Unum.
