From Madison Public Art Project’s website:
“You’re invited to Madison Public Art Project’s (MPAP) upcoming Community Crochet Day. The MPAP is always looking for new ways to connect art & community. Our upcoming installation, The Wildflowers of Wisconsin, will be a large fiber public art mural designed by artist Kiersten Darling. In creating this exciting mural we are inviting the community into the art-making process to crochet the individual floral elements that will make up the larger artistic composition.
Join in on the fun Monday evening at Sequoya Public Library Room’s 104 & 105. Yarn supplies, a crochet hook and pattern will be provided for use upon arrival. If you have a crochet hook you can bring it with you. Lead artist Kiersten Darling and workshop artist Sapphira Afifi, will be there to provide crochet tips from the pattern showing how they crochet each flower. Join us for multiple worships and learn how to make the different flowers!
The Wildflowers of Wisconsin offers a creative way for neighbors to connect with each other and become part of the public art process. Art holds the power to connect communities together and to educate and inspire. Join us to help create this exciting new project! This public art project encourages individuals to rethink their own consumption habits and raises awareness about climate change. For more project information visit: www.MadisonPublicArtProject.org
All experience levels welcome.
Children must be accompanied by an adult for duration of program. You can also drop off your completed flower at our next workshop.
