Alison Thompson The Magic of the Garden - Mushrooms

The Magic of the Garden workshop and installation by Alison Thompson

Crochet is an art form. Whether it is for blankets, beanies or to wrap around a tree, crochet will create a story to share. This act of mindfulness combined with a community activity creates a colourful and relaxed blank canvas for us to work with, the outcome being different every time we meet. This year I have been lucky enough to crochet my way around the children’s space at Eden Gardens for Eden Unearthed and I would love to share and grow my installation with you.

Whether you are a beginner or advanced in crochet, join me and create some critters to add to the garden. This workshop includes 3 hours of crochet time, making bugs, butterflies, rainbows, clouds… all kinds of magical garden critters that bring a child’s imagination to life. Once completed, you can add your creation to my installation. All materials provided for you to come along and craft.

Details: Sunday 13 October, 1pm – 4pm; Cost: $50. Bookings:
