Snake making on Tomboy Knitters

Come have a ‘woolly-woolly’ good time at the Migration Museum these July school holidays and make and decorate your own Tomboy knitter.

Get inventive with wool these July school holidays. Make and decorate your very own Tomboy knitter (also known as French knitting) and use our yarn to get your creation started. Take home what you make or leave it at the museum to help decorate our courtyard and entrance gates.
