We are inviting people to help the Museum to create a mini squadron of knitted and crochet helicopters as part of our 'Sky High' art series of installations next year. We will also be involving embroidery and sewing enthusiasts to use our stories, collections and aircraft, as inspiration for military inspired fashion jackets, and a graffiti art project.
We need your help to create as many mini helicopters as possible to be displayed around our historic helicopters which range from the Lynx, the Scout, a Gazelle and even a Cobra! The closing date for submitting mini helicopters is the 31st January 2021. They can be any size or colour, and the brighter the better! You can download a pattern HERE or HERE, or you are welcome to use your own. You can find a crochet pattern HERE.
Completed helicopters can be posted to the Museum whilst we are closed, or if you live locally you may wish to wait until we reopen after the National Lockdown. Please post to: Army Flying Museum, Middle Wallop, Stockbridge, Hants, SO2O 8FB.
Below are a selection of the wonderful creations which have already been submitted. Thanks to all those who have participated. There is still time to get knitting - we can't wait to add your creations to the gallery below!
