THE SARATOGA SPRINGS SATELLITE REEF PROJECT DRAWS ON THE LONG HISTORICAL CONNECTIONS, ESPECIALLY IN THE UNITED STATES, BETWEEN FIBER PRACTICE AND COMMUNITY BUILDING. THE PROJECT CONNECTS HOBBY CRAFTERS, ART PROFESSIONALS, NOVICE CROCHETERS, AND STUDENTS FROM SKIDMORE, BROADER SARATOGA, AS WELL AS OTHER GLOBAL COMMUNITIES. BUT YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO CROCHET? NO PROBLEM. KRISTEN HYMAN, A BELOVED MEMBER OF OUR STITCH ‘N BITCH GROUP AND A CERTIFIED CROCHET INSTRUCTOR WITH OVER 20 YEARS OF FACILITATION EXPERIENCE WILL TEACH US HOW TO CROCHET A CORAL REEF, AND THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF YARN AND CROCHET HOOKS FOR US TO USE. IN AUGUST, WE WILL HEAR FROM THE FOLKS AT TANG TEACHING MUSEUM ABOUT THE SARATOGA SPRINGS SATELLITE REEF PROJECT AND WE WILL BE CELEBRATING WOMEN’S EQUALITY DAY AT PALETTE IN SARATOGA. WE PLAN TO COLLECT ALL THE CROCHET CORAL REEF PIECES DONATED FROM THE GROUP AND CONNECT THEM TOGETHER TO BE PART OF THE EXHIBIT NEXT YEAR! THE PROJECT RESPONDS TO THE ENVIRONMENTAL CRISIS OF GLOBAL WARMING AND THE ESCALATING PROBLEM OF OCEANIC PLASTIC TRASH, AND THE EXHIBIT WILL HIGHLIGHT THE POSITIVE ACTIONS HUMANS TAKE DESPITE THE DAMAGE WE DO TO THE EARTH’S ECOLOGY. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED, ALTHOUGH THIS EVENT IS FREE. THE EVENT IS HELD AT PALETTE CAFÉ IN SARATOGA IN PERSON ON AUGUST 26, 2021 FROM 7PM-8PM
