Hi everyone, we wanted to share with our local customers that there is a fabulous exhibition on at The Discovery Centre called Blooming Marvellous, and their project is a knitted garden. We visited them at the weekend and took pictures of the fantastic work. This is from the Gosport Council website... and you add knit and add to the exhibition, Diva Crafts have donated a knitted poppy!

Blooming Marvellous Intergenerational Community Knitted Garden FREE admission!
A truly magical life-size knitted garden is coming this spring. Over 2,500 knitters and crocheters worked with participatory visual artist Pauline Stanley to create the garden, which is complete with knitted flowers and insects, garden shed and mouth-watering picnic. Come and join in to help our garden grow.Supported by Arts Council England and Bournemouth Borough Council.
This exhibition is the Gallery building located just off the High Street. Open Monday to Saturday 10am to 5pm.
Please note the Gallery is closed on Sundays and bank holidays.
A new piece of the garden will be created by the local community from Gosport & Fareham which is added to the display as it continues on its tour.
We are inviting local people and community groups to take part and knit something for the display.
Please get in touch if you would like to knit or crochet something for the exhibition or if you can donate wool for workshops. All ages and all abilities are welcomed.
