Join knitter Sue Winnington to start the creation of your own knitted Black Sabbath band members.  Sue will be knitting from the specialist patterns by Elaine Munn which have been licensed for this event.  She will be showing you some of her knitted band members, who are also included in the block buster ‘Black Sabbath – 50 Years’ exhibition at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, and will help you make a start on your own knitted figures.

Please bring along 3mm or 3 1/4 mm knitting needles (size 10), black wool, flesh coloured wool and any other colour that you would like to make costume or clothing out of.

Participants must be able to do knit and pearl stitch and to increase and decrease.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.
