YKWU (You can Knit With Us) is Colèchi’s very own knitting club that launched at the Tate Britain in January 2022 and has since travelled across London communities. We started YKWU as a way to encourage people to take part in the art of producing fashion through knitting; and to change the idea of who can knit.

Each session emphasises skill sharing, multigenerational learning and making new connections. YKWU collaborates with knitwear designers, yarn producers and educators to allow an explorative reconnection with traditional clothes making.
