For the first time ever, the astonishing knitted creations of Norfolk nonagenarian Margaret Seaman will be displayed together
Margaret has knitted Sandringham House, Great Yarmouth seafront, and enchanted forest and - through the coronavirus lockdowns - Knittingale Hospital.
They will be the centrepiece of the Norfolk Makers Festival Showcase at Norwich Forum from June 1-11.
Margaret, of Great Yarmouth, has attracted a worldwide following for her amazing creations, which she makes to raise money for charity.
The Norfolk Makers’ Festival will also include many of the county’s most talented craftspeople and artists, showing some of the work they made during the pandemic.
See a fairytale grotto made from glass, the beautiful coronaquilt created by the Norwich Costume and Textile Association, masks made by schoolchildren with the help of artists from Norwich University of the Arts, plus beadwork, lacework and a giant knitted Canaries banner.
There will also be the chance to watch demonstrations of weaving, glass modelling, knitting, dyeing, painting, embroidery, craftwork and more.
