A large-scale, hand-knitted version of St Wulfram’s, Grantham, will go on display in the church during July.
The hand-crafted St Wulfram’s, which was created by local knitting group ‘In the Loop’, is the 5th church to be completed as part of our Woolly Spires Project. Woolly versions of St Denys’, Sleaford; St Mary & St Nicolas, Spalding; St Botolph’s (The Boston Stump) and St James’, Louth have already been made and a woolly version of St Mary’s, Stow which is due to be finished this month will complete the project.
Woolly Spires takes its inspiration from the fact that many of Lincolnshire’s churches were funded by wealthy landowners who made their fortune on the backs of the county’s iconic breed of sheep the Lincoln Long Wool. artsNK has worked with local community and knitting groups across Lincolnshire, supporting them to create amazingly detailed woolly versions of their churches, which are knitted over a scaled down model.
The woolly St Wulfram’s, together with the five other Woolly Spires, will go on show at an exhibition in Lincoln Cathedral during August 2017.
The church is open Mon – Fri 10am – 4pm and Sat 10am – 1pmFor more information about the church visit www.stwulframs.org.uk
