Join science communicator Ngaio as they explore how the greatest knitters of all time weave their intricate webs. Not only are spiders experts at appearing when you least expect it, they also have much more in common with your local knitting club than you’d expect!

Come along and learn about the humble beginnings of these master craftsmen, about their trade, materials, designs, and expert execution. You will leave with a newfound appreciation for the corner cobwebs in your garage and maybe even some inspiration for your next knitting project!

This event is free, but bookings are essential.
