Knit Fish In Aid of The RNLI!

Knit Fish In Aid of The RNLI!

Tuesday 2nd August 2011

Cuillin FM is working with ATLAS, who are presenting Fish Exchange with the artist Deidre Nelson in aid of the Portree RNLI.

Do you enjoy knitting or sewing? They need your help making Silver Darlings!

What is this project about?
They are inviting you to knit or make a Silver Darling for a shoal of fish to welcome the Celeste into Portree Harbour on the 10th September as part of the Bàta Brèagha / Bonnie Boat event for the Year of Scotland’s Islands. Silver Darlings will then be sold or auctioned in aid of the local RNLI. Each fish will be on exhibition but it is entirely up to the maker whether to put their fish up for auction.

Want to know how to knit a fish?
Drop into Over the Rainbow or the Skye Baking Company and collect a pattern or from Cuillin FM &

Want to hear more about the project?
The artist Deidre Nelson is giving an evening talk about the project on 28th July at 7pm - an opportunity to share ideas/materials, ask advice and talk fish.

Hand in day: 2 September @ Isle of Skye Crafts, Over the Rainbow, Quay Brea Portree
