Escape Arts have been busy working on an exciting new community art installation for Warwickshire Open Studios. Stratford’s Secret Knitted Garden has been developed by the Escape Arts volunteer group In-Stitches, who have been busy knitting, felting and crocheting flowers, veggies, bugs, birds and creatures for a vibrant, outdoor landscape which will be installed in the Escape Arts & Heritage Centre garden, in the Yard off Sheep Street, Stratford upon Avon. Since Covid-19 the In-Stitches group have kept in touch through an online WhatsApp group and this project has helped keep everyone connected and creatively engaged across periods of lockdown throughout the pandemic. With increased social media promotion the group has recruited lots of new volunteers, all helping to make and create things for the garden, with over 40 contributors from as far away as Bristol.

We look forwarded to sharing this beautiful work with you during Warwickshire Open Studios' Summer Art Weeks.
