Crochet | Children's Day Crochet Workshop
On National Children’s Day, here in Brazil, I took part in a local art event here in Santos and gave my first ever crochet workshop here in Brazil at the new art house Bangalô which has just opened around the corner. Read more
It was amazing to be part of an event once again, this is something I have missed since working together with both the wonderful Dagma Ehes and Janette Zeiger on Klosterberge Strassa in Magdeburg, Germany.
Here we are together when we did an Street Art Festival event a few years ago!
I had the chance to work together with a vibrant mix of talented artists includin Eliége Ribeiro who creates traditional Brazilian Xilogravora, Ale Spinelle who paints beautiful watercolour illustrations, the talented Lia Junqueira maker of gorgeous ceramics and the talented brand ‘Outro Cookie’ who makes the most devine cookies and brownies, aslwell as many many more talented people.

As part of this day I gave a free workshop to the lovely children who came to our event (despite the rain!). How to make their own crochet flower headband as shown below modelled by Pãozinha.
I was overwhelmed with how many children wanted to part of my little workshop, which included both girlies and boys who wanted to make a crochet flower tiara for their mums or sisters.
Together with Bangalô 'Art House' we are now preparing for our next event on the 17th November for Black Awareness Day known as 'Dia da Consciência Negra'. More info coming this week!
