COASTAL CONNECTIONS


Watery Woolly World


Throughout the Guardians of the Deep project we sent out knitting patterns in our monthly newsletter and met with knitting groups asking for contributions to create a "Woolly Watery World". We were amazed by the response and received hundreds of knitted and crocheted marine plants and animals. Our Woolly Watery World display, beautifully designed by Tara Schirn, went on tour around Kent to reflect the importance and diversity of Kent’s marine wildlife as well as the threats this amazing ecosystem is facing.

We would like to say a massive thank you for all the donated knitted and crocheted marine life and to the venues that displayed the creations:

  • Riverside Country Park, Gillingham
  • Sheppey Matters in The Healthy Living Center, Sheerness
  • The Sheppey Gateway, Sheerness
  • Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve and Jeffery Harrison Visitor Centre, Sevenoaks
  • Co-innovation Centre, Dover
  • Tourist Information Centre, Margate
  • Maidstone Museum, Maidstone
  • Tyland Barn, Sandling

Woolly Watery World displays are set to remain at Riverside Country Park, Gillingham and Kent Wildlife Trust visitor centres into the future.


Please continue to download the patterns and create your own woolly watery world.
