Knitted Torpedo

In 2014 WildWorks Theatre made history when over 5000 people joined in commemorating the centenary of the beginning of WW1 by remembering the community’s lost men in a powerful dawn ‘til dusk performance: 100: The Day Our World Changed,  at the Lost Gardens of Heligan.  This July WildWorks return with 100: Unearth a production of love, loss and hope, and there are opportunities for you to help us by contributing in various ways to our supporting projects.

    Hi I posted six squares to you could have done more but only had a few days after returning to Derby after being at Eden Project for Gary Barlow concert. It was lovely to chat with you & it gave my son a breather from pushing my wheelchair in the Biomes! Hope your project went well would love to see photo of the finished torpedo
