One and Other - Trafalgar Square's 4th plinth

On the 26th July our workshop tutor Anne Makepeace will be taking her place on Trafalgar Square's 4th plinth for an hour of knitting. This is part of of Anthony Gormley’s One and Other project. The Angel of the North creator is enabling different people to make the plinth their own, every hour, 24 hours a day, for 100 days without a break. Anne is one of the 2400 people who will climb up to the space normally reserved for Kings and Generals, but which is being handed over instead to people of all walks of life.
The mum-of-two is planning to spend her hour of fame showing people how much fun knitting can be, surrounded by woolly flowers. She is appealing for people to knit or crochet flowers for her to take on to the plinth, which will later be made into brooches/corsages and sold to raise funds for the following two charities. Arthritis Care Newcastle City Branch and East Sussex Association for the Blind – cash/cheque donations also gratefully received.
If you would like to donate a knitted or crocheted flower please see our latest newsletter for full details. Good luck Anne!
