How to Knit – Tree Sweaters
On Nov. 28th, 2022, the Ferndale Arts Commission hosted a free workshop for participants to learn how to knit with the goal of making some tree sweaters that would then be installed on the trees at Griffintown Park in Spring 2023.
For those who were unable to attend the event, yarn and needles are still available for free at City Hall for those who wish to participate and the instructor, Arts Commissioner Bryna Sweeney, recorded a video version of her training.
