To showcase the work that you've done for the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef project, on Friday March 6th at 6:00 pm, Tempe Yarn & Fiber and the Scottsdale Public Arts will hold a Collection Party and Celebration.
However, this isn't the last opportunity to donate pieces to this project. We'll continue to collect items through March 26th.
If you haven't participated in the project there is still time. We'll be holding a free Hyperbolic Crochet class on Friday, March 20th at 6:00pm. Participants should call ahead to register, as space will be limited. Yarn will be provided, but students should bring their own crochet hooks if they have them, or they may purchase them at TYF. Previous experience with crochet (chain and single crochet stitches) is helpful, but not necessary.
Finally, Tempe Yarn will also continue to host a Coral Reef Project group every Friday night at 6:00pm through the end of March.
We are planning to contribute two sets of pieces for the Scottsdale Public Art installation: one made entirely from natural fibers (wool, cotton, etc.) and another created with man-made fibers (plastic, acrylic, nylon, etc.). Group participants should bring or buy their own hooks and yarn (or man-made materials) to crochet with. For those who don't crochet, knitted and/or felted pieces are perfectly acceptable, as well as free form knitted/ crocheted shapes to complement the more formulaic Hyperbolic pieces.
