Join us at Peace Industry, this Sunday, for a Crochet Jam with Ramekon O'Arwisters

Please join us at Peace Industry this Sunday for a Crochet Jam and artist's talk with, artist, Ramekon O'Arwisters. Ramekon will demonstrate the simple technique and provide all of the materials. At the end of the jam, all of the pieces will be linked to create one single work of freeform textile art. Ramekon will talk about how and why he started this project, which is fascinating, inspiring, and uplifting.

Crochet Jam engages 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.

Ramekon O'Arwisters started Crochet Jam in 2012. His social-art practice 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.
