Tradition Interrupted featured artist Ramekon O’Arwisters is a Bay Area-based social practice artist who founded Crochet Jam in 2012. This ongoing community art project is based on his life-long connection to the African American tradition of weaving in inclusive, friendly environments without rules or restrictions. During Crochet Jams, participants engage in the folk-art tradition of rag weaving while fostering a culture of cooperation.This art workshop is perfect for all-ages and no experience is necessary. Come learn to crochet shoulder-to-shoulder with the artist and take your creation home. Beverages and light snacks will be served.
