Calling Cape Breton knitters!!! Join this exciting collaborative project: Cast-offs is a site-specific installation of hand knitting conceived for the grounds of the Inverness County Centre for the Arts (ICCA) for the exhibition Interlacing Conversations August 30 to September 20,2015.

Want to contribute to this project? Email Mackenzie Kelly-Frère at

Cast-offs will be composed of more than fifty hand-knit, flat wool ”drawings” of hats, socks, long underwear and mittens. These will then be flown from poles set into the landscape surrounding the Inverness County Centre for the Arts. Knitters in Cape Breton and Alberta will lend their hands and ingenuity to the creation of individual pieces that will contribute to a riot of colour on the wind.
