THE KNITTING PILGRIM is a one-act play performed by fibre artist/actor Kirk Dunn, and tells the story of his 15-year artistic and spiritual journey knitting Stitched Glass: three large tapestries, designed in the style of stained glass windows, exploring the commonalities and conflicts of the Abrahamic faiths. Kirk’s hope behind The Knitting Pilgrim has always been to create conversation. (
