Today I joined with a group at the Museum of Contemporary Craft in a crocheted sculpture project. The leader of the project, Bonnie Meltzer, makes her own sculptures of wire; however, because of weight considerations, this one was made of yarn. Here is a Facebook post showing photos of the group around the table. (I used to be able to drag photos off of FB and use them; doesn’t seem to work now so hope the link works.)
And just to prove I was there.
This was improv beyond not preplanning a design. The core was wound around approximately, and sometimes it was loose and sometimes tight. No problem, just created texture variations.
A little more work needs to be done: finishing the attaching and hiding ends.
Participants covered a wide range of age and ability. The young ones did quite well–they are learning crochet and knitting in school. Some of the adults were just learning while others were quite accomplished. More texture variation.
