Crochet Circle: Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef

Join the Tang Museum on Saturday, September 25, 2-4 pm, for an in-person craft circle as we create corals for the Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef, part of the worldwide Crochet Coral Reef project by Christine and Margaret Wertheim and the Institute For Figuring. Bring your own materials and your WIPs (works in progress) or start something new.

Corals submitted to the Museum will be assembled together to form the Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef, which will be exhibited as part of Radical Fiber: Threads Connecting Art and Science, opening in January 2022. This event is open to all, and all skill levels—including those looking to learn crochet for the first time—are welcome!

What you need: If you’re a savvy fiber crafter, use whatever’s in your stash! If you’re a beginner, we recommend medium-weight (4) yarn and a 5.5mm (or I/9) crochet hook.
