Sunday March 28 through Tuesday March 1, the School of Arts and Communication at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse, is hosting its third annual Creative Imperatives festival, a 3-day-long slate of presentations, performances, lectures, workshops and activities. This year’s theme is Wonder and Curiosity: The Intersection of Art and Science.
Tuesday, March 1st, 9am-12noon, IFF Director Margret Wertheim will host a hands-on workshop to teach techniques for crocheting corals. Experienced crocheters and beginners are equally welcome. Hooks and yarns will be supplied.
The workshop will help to launch the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse School Reef, a campus-wide endeavor in which students, faculty and staff will construct their own crochet reef. This year-long participatory project will culminate in an exhibition of the UW-La Cross School Reef in 2017.
Workshop title: Crocheting Corals
Place: Room 203, Center for the Arts, University of Wisconsin La Crosse
