Why knitting ?

During WWI there was a call for knitters to provide for men in the trenches. There were also calls for those back home to work in munitions factories … we’ve combined these facts and are creating a knitted torpedo for the production 100: UnEarth at Heligan.  Candy Smit has been busy researching this subject for us.

The Passion of Port Talbot

Easter weekend will always resonate with us at WildWorks. Last year we lost Bill on Good Friday. As always, his timing was impeccable as it allowed us to grieve privately in the bubble of the bank holiday weekend. As we get closer and closer to the show we were working on with Bill into his final days, 100: UnEarth, our thoughts turn to Easter weekend 2011 and The Passion of Port Talbot.

Riotous. Rambunctious. Rewarding.
