A feast for the eyes of all knitters, crochet fans, yarn-bombers and crafters, our colourful summer exhibition explores the creative ways in which people, both past and present, have made use of yarn, thread and wool.
Knitwits includes items from the Museum’s extensive costume and archival collections, including a 17th century sock, “make do and mend” pamphlets and clothing, as well as more modern knitted fashions. The Museum is also pleased to include examples of knitted and crocheted creations, kindly sent in by the talented residents of Horsham District.
The exhibition will display knitted creations from artists such as Materialistics and Max Alexander. Materialistics are a group of knitters and stitchers, ranging from novices to experts, who enjoy practising skills in creative ways, using recycled materials whenever possible. Horsham Museum has borrowed four of Materialistics’ pieces, which have reproduced iconic works of art through knitting, crochet and sewing such as The Great Wave inspired by Hokusai, The Kiss inspired by Gustav Klimt and Marilyn Monroe inspired by Andy Warhol.
Also on show are a selection of knitted moths by London-based artist, Max Alexander. Max started knitting moths in 2014 and has since expanded her range to include framed artworks, jewellery and cards. The moths are all hand knitted with Shetland wool, and each one is based on a real species of moth.
We proudly celebrated Sir Peter Blake’s ‘Portraits and People’ exhibition at the Waddington Custot Gallery in early 2016. The show featured an intimate 360° video interview with the world-renowned godfather of pop art Sir Peter Blake, and painter, sculptor, and printmaker Hayden Kays.

Ewkuks presents Street Artists – Adam Dare and Dirt Cobain.
527 N Fairfax Ave | Los Angeles | CA
Dare is a Brooklyn-born NYC street artist, bitten by the graffiti bug during the summer of 1980 as he watched a tag being left at the Park Circle skating rink. Since then he’s made his mark on walls, trains and tunnels with the tenacious drive he retains today.
Growing up in NYC, Dare was influenced by the turbulent and free spirited 70s and 80s, a exciting time in music, art and style. Now blending graffiti, hip-hop, punk and metal, his work is burnished with pop culture to create his signature aesthetic.
Since the second wave of NYC graffiti artists, he’s been best known for his Bunny, an icon he’s drawn since childhood. This heartbroken, blind bunny earned Dare the nickname “The Bunnyman” and inspired his slogan “Ain’t about the money, All about the Bunny.”
Integrating socially conscious street art with self-expressive imagery, Adam Dare’s work uses an emotive technique of mixed media, stencils and dark subject matter to cast his talent from NYC, Miami and LA to London, Berlin and Rome.
Originally from the Bay Area, Dirt Cobain gained momentum in the street art scene off Melrose and Fairfax. By blending pop art and street art with his own influence he has created “dirty style” a style that is based on life experiences and that he defines as a form of self expression. He currently resides in Brooklyn, New York where he continues to expand his movement.
