Can you knit?

knitted poppies

We are looking for knitters who would like to make poppies to be part of a display in the phone box museum for Remembrance Day. You are welcome to use either of the patterns below, or use your own.

Completed poppies should be sent to 28 St Edyths Road, Bristol BS9 2ES and we will be delighted to include them in our display. We have at least one champion knitter in Sea Mills, so let’s hope we can find some more!

Graft bring a new display to the museum

A brand new display has gone into the Sea Mills Museum today. It’s courtesy of Graft who are behind the Sea Mills Pattern Project and the upcoming mural at Sea Mills station.

It’s the first display to have been completed by a group outside the Sea Mills 100 project itself, so it’s a great step forward in our hopes to update the displays more regularly.

The display includes Graft’s Sea Mills pattern which was designed in co-operation with local people and takes the flora and fauna of the area as its theme. It’s accompanied by photographs from their project and new audio tracks on our green powered audio player. The museum is open every day between 9am and 5pm.

Anyone else who is interested in creating a display for the museum please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
