News and Events

Women's Health Tasmania hold events throughout the year to inform, entertain and celebrate women. Upcoming events are listed below, advertised in our Newsletter, and on our Facebook page.

Knit Your Bits

Knit Your Bits is a craft project about women’s bodies. During 2021 we asked women to sew, knit or crochet part of their body for an exhibition to celebrate International Women’s Day in March 2022.

Our goal was to create positive understandings of the diversity of women’s bodies using craft and community. 

Knit Your Bits. Which bit will you knit?
