Crochet Coral

October 10, 2010

Yesterday was the launch of the Melbourne Satellite of the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef at Burrinja Gallery.  It was a very exciting day for the many contributors who have wielded hooks making coral for this wonderful worldwide community project.  Congratulations to the curator(s) Tracy Hallyar and Annie Wertheim and a wonderful team that worked so hard to pull it all together  – they have made a stunning art installation from a riotous profusion of colour and stitchery from all manner of fibres –  from all around Victoria.  If you get the chance – it is certainly worth a visit.

  1. Beautiful hyperbolic crochet coral reef art!


    • Gorgeous isn’t it. I’m constantly amazed by the number of really clever crafters doing wonderful works of art. This is a collaboration of some 160 people from all walks of life from early primary school up to elderly women in nursing homes … a true testament to the meaning of community!
