Providing a temporary art fix until it re-opens its doors in the autumn, Whitworth Art Gallery continues its pub-crawl-with-a-difference this Sunday as it pops down to neighbouring drinking hole, Big Hands, for a ‘music knit hack’. This week, artist and videosmith Sam Meech ( combines his talents with Marie Young and Iris Cooper for an ambient textile experiment to bring art, music and knitting together. Using live music and sound samples – via a Tenori-on  – alongside a laptop and hacked knitting machines, the experiment will work to create parallels between electronic sequencing and knitted digital image. Mixing several different formats and art forms in front of a live audience, this is almost certainly one of the most creative pub crawls you’ll probably ever go on.

Sun 23 Feb, Big Hands, Oxford Road, M13 9NS, 1pm – 6pm, FREE – just turn up,
