Something Special: Craft Research

crochet research

Participate in the Wooly Wellbeing Research study. “This would contribute to a PhD study into the ways women share their knit and crochet online. Do you post to ask for advice or to show images of what you have made? Does it help you manage feeling lonely or to connect with other crafter-friends?” via @NYACrochet

Crochet Quote

“Gretchen does many things. In spring her gardens take most of her leisure time. In the winter she crochets. “When I don’t have a project,” she said “I’m a little off kilter.” Most people who do a craft feel this way. Creativity in your life makes it fuller. When I’m in my studio doing decoupage I literally lose myself for hours at a time. I imagine many people who work on a computer feel the same way. The creative process does involve concentration whether on technique or during the design process, but when you get good at it, you enter a calm zone with time for thinking. Crafting relieves stress.”source

Crochet Art

Crochet artist Olek is participating in Rain Basera, a Street+Art Delhi project. She is going to “run an art project based on social inclusion and women empowerment” and “will produce meters of crochet to wrap diverse daily objects in the city, bringing people together in the realisation of the artwork and creating something extraordinary and simple, yet beautiful.” Rain Basera is a project in collaboration with the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board to add beauty to 12 of the 180+ temporary shelters in the area.
