‘Peacemakers’ was installed in Renfield St. Stephen’s Church, Glasgow, and ran between 7th July 2014 and 12th January 2018.  The 35 peg, 1.81m in diameter French knitting loom was designed as an interactive installation, with the intention of engaging with visitors to Glasgow during the 2014 Commonwealth Games.  ‘Peacemakers’ developed into a profound and transformative experience for the people who participated around the loom.   Over three and a half years, thousands of people from Glasgow and beyond, came through the open door of the Church and were welcomed, listened to and prayed for as they shared in the simple action of knitting on the loom.
