Wrap with Love

New UOW Library System launching 9 December 2020

We're implementing a new Library System to deliver user-centred digital services.

Find out more and what you might need to do to be ready.

Wrap with Love is a Sydney-based not-for-profit committed to providing warm, hand-knitted blankets to over 75 countries since 1992.

Building upon the UOW Library's decade-long support for Wrap With Love, the UOW Student Makerspace proudly began hosting workshops and knit-ins for students and staff alike in 2018.

Following the success of this program, and our partnership with the IFIS English Conversation Group, we're proud to continue providing knitting needles and materials for the foreseeable future (although please feel free to BYO).

This means that you can come into the UOW Student Makerspace at any time during our opening hours and knit squares to contribute to Wrap wWith Love, or any other projects that may be introduced from time to time, such as the '5000 Poppies' project.

In the collaborative spirit of the makerspace, we hope to foster a supportive community where staff and students of all skill levels are welcome to come and knit for a good cause.

Use your spare time to make a real difference!

Knitting workshops

Assisted knitting workshops are held in the UOW Student Makerspace each Wednesday from 12.30-1.30pm.

Come knit with us!

You can come into the MakerSpace at any time and start knitting, whether for a project like Wrap with Love or just for fun. You're also welcome to knit your squares (you may even like to get a group together) and drop the finished squares into the MakerSpace located on the ground floor of the Wollongong Campus Library.
