Crochet Jam with visiting artist Ramekon O'Arwisters

Thursday, September 12, 2019

Crochet Jam, hosted by social-practice artist Ramekon O'Arwisters, uses the folk-art tradition of crocheting strips of fabric into free-form and organic soft sculptures to foster social interaction, creative, and liberation. There aren't any rules nor patterns. Crochet Jam is an opportunity for play, experimentation, and for allowing the material to transform naturally without any expectations nor any attempt to control the outcome. Participants become a conduit for the transformation of the material without any resistance, whether they like what they see or not. Participants just crochet and calmly observe without judging or critique. No attempt is made to dictate the creative process and there is no focus on the finished product. Basic instruction in crochet and all materials provided. Photo courtesy of VCUarts
