Creativity Makes Us Kin.

In my social-art practice, collaborative, community-based art projects are combined with folk-art traditions and techniques to foster and support a culture of collaboration and team-building in a relaxing, affirming, and meditative environment, in which participants can access their creativity. Crochet Jam provides a heightened state of relaxation that reduces stress and anxiety, promoting creative thinking and problem-solving. Art heals—it's a bridge that unites people and cultures.

The goal is to quickly and easily engage participants in a relaxed and creative state by transforming cloth strips into large
tapestries using the folk-art tradition of rag-rug making. Materials are provided and no attempt is made to direct the creativity outcome
of the project. Instruction in basic crocheting is provided.
