Knitted Bible

1

The Knitted Bible was created by St George’s Church URC, Hartlepool. It comprises of over 30 passages from the Bible recreated with knitted dolls. It is very colourful and creative, and a wonderful way to illustrate Biblical stories.

It is on tour at the moment (and will be till the end of December 2019!) I saw the Knitted Bible last week whilst it was on display at St Stephen’s Church, Chatham.

Shell Grotto, Margate

1

A few weeks ago I took a trip to the seaside town of Margate to see its beautiful Shell Grotto. The grotto was discovered in 1835 but is still shrouded in mystery. No one is completely sure who created it, when, or for what purpose. But one indisputable fact is how utterly stunning the grotto is. For more details about the shell grotto please follow this link: http://shellgrotto.co.uk/

Folkestone Triennial 2017

The Folkestone Triennial is a visual arts festival which has been held every three year since 2008. Contemporary artists use the coastal setting of Folkestone in Kent to create site-specific works that bring art out of the gallery setting and into public spaces. Yesterday I visited the event and here are some photographs from the inspiring Triennial.
