Description or Artist's Statement
Workshops (August 2017) To kick-off the project, Carol Hummel, and her assistant Molly Sedensky came to the Quad Cities. Hummel gave an artist talk that situated the project within her oeuvre, and Sedensky taught participants how to crochet. Packets of yarn and patterns for the project were then dispersed, for participants to work on at their own pace.
Crochet-Ins (September-October 2017) Between the workshops and the installation, we held a number of crochet-ins at various locations throughout the Quad Cities, so that participants could work together, socialize, and help each other along with their contributions of crocheted circles to the project.
