Crochet Jams engage the public to think differently about the role of art within community and the power of art within society. Crochet Jam—a public, art-making event that's embracing and inclusive, with no attempt made to dictate the creative process nor judge the finished project—is meditative, liberating, and empowering. Gianni Jetzer walk-through, Artadia Exhibition. Part 4: Ramekon O’Arwisters

Ramekon O'Arwisters started Crochet Jam in 2012. My community-art event is rooted in a cherished childhood memory that's steeped in the African-American tradition of weaving in a calm and non-judgmental environment without rules or limitations.

Postponed due to Coronavirus pandemic. I will only post virtual Crochet Jams when they occur until the pandemic is over. Thank you and take good care.
