    The Knitted Convenience

     

    Australian Guerrilla knitter Denise Litchfield took over a public building with knit as part ofDesign 09.

    On Saturday August 8th in Taylor Square, a team of lavatory assistants, urban knitters and crocheters descended on a heritage listed men's urinal to reclaim it back into the public eye.


    Blur the lines between graffiti, art, and challenging the role of knitting in a contemporary world, the crew decked out the Square in shining yellow handknit.


    When: Saturday August 8th from 11am
    Where: Taylor Square, Oxford
    St Darlinghurst Sydney
