Jersey Heritage Knitathon

14 to 19 October 11am to 3pm

Join Dutch artist Harald den Breejen and local knitters to create a new ‘Jersey’ jumper to represent the Island in modern times.

 

Originally a form of textile, the ‘Jersey’ became synonymous with jumpers worn by local fishermen. They featured an anchor on the breast and were usually dyed blue. Design details on the jumpers indicated a place of origin so that if a sailor was lost at sea their body could be sent back home. Harald has worked with local knitters to work out what symbols might represent and identify the Island today.  Come and watch the knitters at work, discover more about Jersey jumpers, or join the knitting team!
