Spaghetti for Two: Jazz MoretonArtist Commission: Milton Keynes Disability Awareness Day 2020
The performance sees the host of what would be a party in normal times spending the time that she would have spent cooking to knit a friendship bracelet. Instead of pasta, her cooking-pot contains string. The artist will instruct her audience on how to cast on, knit and cast off.
We invite you to join in the performance and make your own friendship bracelet from home in your own time.
