Meet extraordinary knitting and crochet queen, Kate Jenkins at Kate's Cones Ice Cream Parlour on Saturday afternoon.
Visiting the exhibition and meeting Kate is free and there is no need to book.
Kate will be present in the gallery, doing some knitting and crochet demos and will assist you in choosing your very own Kate's Cones artwork. This is your chance to own a bespoke knitted ice cream artwork. Choose one, two or three ‘scoops’ of knitted ice cream and from a variety of toppings in embroidery and beads. These will be encased in a special perspex box and signed for you hang on your wall. A true collaboration between you and the artist.
There is a menu of choices and pricing for your bespoke ice cream artwork. See the second image.
How it works.
From the menu...
Choose one, two or three scoops which will be presented in a knitted waffle cone.
Choose your toppings from a menu of crochet fruit, nuts or sprinkles.
Then choose between a background of simple white or printed sprinkles.
All will be placed in a perspex box frame, signed by Kate Jenkins.

“While my journey has been varied and exciting, one thing never changes,” she says. “Whatever I create, whether it’s a carton of French fries, a tin of sardines or a box of frogs I always include lots of warmth and a dash of wit. Above all, I want my work to make people smile.”
