Whodunnknit event: Meet the BT ArtBox Monster Maker

There’s been a Monster on the Trafalgar Square roundabout for the last 23 days. He’s survived the raging summer rains, the rough love of celebrating and commiserating football fans, the rainbow rumble of the Pride parade, a march of people dressed as Pandas (honestly!), and the hugs of more passers by than any monster has known before (except maybe Elmo from Seasame Street who appears to be some kind of hug magnet).

Whodunnknit Pix: Popped by to show Muncher the @BTArtBox my fancy outfit. He's just eaten a policeman apparently. Sorry, London. #btartbox

Monster Maker and monster. Come meet us!

Meet the Monster Maker

Whodunnknit Pix: Dear London, go hug my giant knitted monster @btartbox on Trafalgar Square roundabout till July 16th! RROWRR! #btartboxWondering how Muncher came about and what on earth prompted a graffiti knitter to release the world’s only wild and woolly Phone Box Beast into the gritty city? Got questions about Muncher’s eating habits, his favourite colour, or where he sees himself in five years time (probably eating someone very famous)? Or do you just want to hug him and hug him until you both explode?

Well, Monday July 9th at 7pm is your chance to meet the Monster Maker and ask anything you like. I’ll be on the Trafalgar Square Roundabout from 7pm, where me and the lovely Mandii Pope (who made the nearby Big Ben Box) will be talking about our crafty creations and fielding any questions you might like to ask.

Handmade Monster Hug Parade

I’ll also be taking pics of all folks with Muncher and will be posting the best handmade monster hugs right here on my blog (as well as on Twitter, Instagram and over at the Whodunnknit Facebook page). There’ll also be a set of exclusive Stitch London goodies up for grabs for my favourite Monster Hug of the Day.

Where is it? The Trafalgar Square Roundabout at the top of Whitehall. You can’t miss it. It’s the one with the big yellow knitted Monster on it! Map here

Come meet me and Muncher. I’d love to say hello and hopefully Muncher will only eat a few of you. Which is as much as I can promise really.

See you there!
