Knitted skin of a Tasmanian tiger - by artist Ruth Marshall

Inspired by artist Ruth Marshall’s knitted skin of a Tasmanian tiger, we have set the knitters of London the challenge of knitting the skins animals, in just 12 HOURS. Bring your knitting needles to stitch one, purl one for an hour over lunch or come after work and be inspired to join in over a glass of wine while you view the exhibition. Throughout the day hear from Strange Creatures co-curator Sarah Wade to find out how natural history museums can use contemporary art and craft to engage visitors.

No need to register, just drop in!
