It’s been a little over a month since H2O launched its latest project–creating a Triangle NC-area Craft Coral Reef! Since then, we’ve held five FREE public workshops that have helped dozens of people of all ages to make some coral creations of their own.
We especially appreciate the dozens of volunteers who have joined us in crocheting coral-inspired creations for the crochet-focused Craft Coral Reef that will be displayed in downtown Cary (stay tuned for more details on that exhibit as they get finalized). We’ve had crocheters from four to 50+, ranging from novices to experts, making all sorts of fantastic coral-inspired life made of nothing more than yarn and their own imaginations.
When we started the project, H2O members had created some sample items:
But after the second public workshop, it had grown to this:
Here are a few pictures from our first workshop:

And our third workshop:
So we’re having lots of fun, and creating some beautiful corals to boot!
If you are in the Triangle NC area and want to join us, our next workshop is on Thursday, May 3. Many thanks to ChambersArts, which has been hosting this FREE public workshops for us.
We appreciate everyone’s contributions (including those who are crocheting things for us at home without coming to a workshop). Keep up the good work, everyone! We still need lots more, though, so if you want to contribute and haven’t had a chance to yet, just let us know. There’s still plenty of time to be part of our consciousness-raising community Craft Coral Reef.
