I would like to invite you to be part of an exciting new project for the Jerwood Contemporary Makers 2009 Exhibition at the Jerwood Space in London.
Across the world, hidden in cupboards are accumulations of half knitted works. On conception the ideas were fueled with love and contemplation. For various reasons, sometimes sad, the projects have stalled. The patterns may be lost, and the yarns run out but with hours of skilled effort, these pieces are rarely thrown away, but hidden in drawers, left to harbor unexplained feelings. Recently abbreviated to 'UFOs,' unfinished objects seem to effect nearly every knitter.
UFO Project Administration Service aims to take these lost, guilt-ridden projects and inject them with a new lease of life. You are invited to send us your UFO's and apply to finish someone else's UFO. We invite you to do what knitters do best - be practical, imaginative, and inventive.
Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form.
All UFO's can be seen at http://ufoadministration.blogspot.com
This site will be constantly up dated as the UFOs fly in. If you see one you would like to work on, please e-mail us.
When finishing a UFO we advise maximum creativity. A forlorn UFO may arrive on your doorstep, asking you to unlock it's secret history, the yarn within the yarn!
Help these UFOs become couture fashion, fine art or heirlooms!
To show a piece as part of Jerwood Contemporary Makers, please act hastily. I need everything in by 29th May!
(But there is no pressure to exhibit, you can work at any pace!)
Watch this space for up dates and paranormal activity.
