Fortune - Bev Moon

24 Feb – 2 Jul, 2023

Artist Bev Moon has crafted a lovingly knitted tribute to her Chinese mother and grandmother.

A Knitted Yum Cha for my Mother’s 90th Birthday

Artist Bev Moon has created a yum cha feast, not of food, but lovingly knitted wool.

‘Fortune’ is the artist’s tribute to her Chinese mother and grandmother who faced great obstacles to settle in New Zealand. Both women were superb cooks and accomplished knitters. Moon weaves both crafts together in this touching tribute.

Complete with table and all the trimmings, this is a yum cha not to miss.
