The Woolly Spires at NCCD

2nd February 2019 to 22nd April 2019

Woolly Spires, Knitted churches

Originally commissioned by The Collection, Lincoln, Woolly Spires was a county-wide project managed by artsNK that took its inspiration from the fact that many of Lincolnshire’s churches were funded by wealthy landowners who made their fortune, literally, on the backs of the county’s iconic breed of sheep, the Lincoln Long Wool.

The woolly churches created during the 8 year project are now on display throughout the building at The National Centre for Craft & Design (NCCD) in Sleaford.

Don’t miss the chance to see the six  3D woolly versions of St Denys’ Church, Sleaford, St Mary & St Nicolas, Spalding; St Botolphs’ Church, Boston (the Boston Stump); St James, Louth; St.Wulfrums in Grantham, and Stow Minster, in the village of Stow (five miles south of Gainsborough).
