As part of Spun: Adventures in Textiles workshops are every Saturday and Sunday 10 am-4 pm through September 22. No registration required.

Everyone from beginners (including kids) to expert crocheters are welcome. DAM staff will teach visitors hyperbolic crochet and provide all supplies. All you need is your imagination!

The Denver Satellite Reef is part of the worldwide Crochet Coral Reef Project, by the Institute For Figuring. This dynamic experiment explores the intersections of marine biology, community art, and geometry through hyperbolic crochet—a crochet technique which mimics the forms of the ocean’s colorful corals, slimy sea slugs, and plentiful kelp. This summer, Denver is growing its own crocheted coral reef from community contributions. Don't miss your chance to get creative and join the movement!

When you contribute a piece to the Denver Satellite Reef, it will first be frozen and then added to the installation. At the Untitled final Friday event, Untitled #61 (Harvest), on September 27, the reef will be “harvested,” and be given away.
