Crocheting Corals: Workshop for the Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef

Join the Tang Museum online, December 7, at 7PM, for a workshop and craft circle to crochet hyperbolic 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. Your corals will be assembled together to form the Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef, which will be exhibited at the Museum as part of Radical Fiber: Threads Connecting Art and Science, opening in early 2022.

Hosted by Associate Curator Rebecca McNamara, this program introduces the Saratoga Springs Satellite Reef and includes a virtual craft circle. Artists and crochet instructors Lucy Beizer and Victoria Manganiello will lead beginners in the single crochet stitch, which is all you need to make your very own coral! We will also learn from one another about our experiences with fiber craft, underwater corals, and other topics.

If you’re ready to crochet, bring yarn and a crochet hook, or come to learn more about the project. 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.

Open to everyone, and all skill levels welcome!
