Creating Crochet Coral Reefs

August 28, 2010

 Today I spent a wonderful afternoon with a bunch of extremely creative crocheters creating more crochet coral for the Melbourne Satellite Reef Project.  We were joined by Mark Rodrigue from Parks Victoria, Marine Coasts and Catchments Officer who spoke (rather passionately) about Victoria’s wonderful and diverse marine national parks and sanctuaries.  VERY inspirational indeed.  In turn, I think he was more than a little blown away by the output of our crochet group.  As our deadline draws near – we are all more increasingly excited by the project and look forward to oour exhibition launch on 9th October.  Well worth a visit. In the meantime, I’ve added a few shots of the coral atoll sister in law Margaret and I have created for the project.  It measures approx one metre across the base.  More coral to follow next post.
