Knit the Walls

19 November, 2017, 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join artist Sarah Filmer at the iconic God’s House Tower for ‘Knit the Walls’, a participatory project, offering the opportunity to contribute to a community art work for future exhibition.

‘Knit the Walls’, featuring artist Deborah Gearing, consists of a 4 hour event connected to the research and multi-artist project ‘God’s House Tower – A reincarnation’. The event has a crucial participatory aspect, as visitors will be involved in knitting a woollen version of Southampton’s medieval walls, discussing with the artist the hidden ‘herstories’ embedded in those walls and thinking how they can creatively access and/or re‑imagine those stories.

Artist Deborah Gearing will deliver a poetry performance of poems written in response to the research she has done into the lost stories of women associated with the walls and God’ʹs House Tower.

Knitting materials (e.g. wool, needles, crochet hooks) will be provided.


This event is part of the series Let’s get lost. Southampton as the Situationist city
