Event description

Description

‘Sit & Knit’ sessions are for anyone with basic knitting skills to come along and view the Remembering Baby: Life, Loss and Post-Mortem exhibition. Using simple patterns we’ll work together to make special items that will be donated to local hospitals to clothe and use as comforters for babies who have died. All materials will be provided and both lone knitters and members of knitting groups are very welcome.


About the exhibition

Remembering Baby: Life, Loss and Post-Mortem is a new exhibition that sensitively challenges taboos surrounding early-life loss. An interdisciplinary research team at the University of Sheffield has worked in collaboration with the British Institute of Radiology artist in residence, Hugh Turvey and sound artist Justin Wiggan, to design and create the exhibition which features a collection of work exploring early-life loss. Visual images, physical objects and sound installations will sensitively explore what happens when a baby dies, from both parental and professional perspectives.

The exhibition is inspired by the ‘End of’ or ‘Start of’ Life?’ research project and is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.
