Knitted kitchen makes an impact Down Under

Fifty artists recently got together to create a unique kitchen in Australia, which was made totally out of wool.

The knitted kitchen, or ‘Knitchen’, includes all of the items that one would expect to find in the finest luxury made kitchens that Ellesmere Port has to offer, including furniture, appliances and food, all created solely from yarn.

A number of techniques, including knitting, felting and crocheting, were used to ensure that the unique kitchen looked as impressive as possible, while as close to the real thing as it is possible to get when using wool.

The display can be found at Queensland’s Warwick Art Gallery and was created as part of the Jumpers and Jazz Festival, which was held last year. Pictures of the unique cooking space are said to be impressing knitting fans all over the world, after snaps of the Knitchen were placed online.

Some highlights of the kitchen include a knitted window, decorative ducks, which are featured on the woollen walls, and even a woven cooker hob.

The knitted kitchen table is filled with a very detailed Sunday roast and an obligatory mug of tea.

Speaking to The Daily Mail about the Knitchen, Loretta Grayson, one of the coordinators of the project, said:

“We were overwhelmed by the popularity of the Knitchen. Many thousands of people visited the exhibition, and it was lovely to see the smiles on visitors’ faces as they noticed all the quirky details.”

She also told reporters of her attachment to the knitted kitchen, which was a project she enjoyed immensely.
