Stitching the Shore

Wednesday, March 6th, 6:30 PM

808 Gallery, Boston University

A public event by Plotform as part of Alternative Visions/Sustainable Futures

Hello friends!   We hope you join Jane Marsching and I in a participatory event we’re organizing at BU.  Come on out for a collaborative crochet session to stitch floating salt marsh islands before they’re deployed in the Boston Harbor.  This workshop – for veteran and inexperienced crochet stitchers alike, will result in community crocheted  connective tissue between our prototype salt marsh modules.   Bring old cotton sheets and clothes to make recycled crochet yarn.  Bring questions, thoughts, and dreams about our coasts, our weather, and climate change.   Join us as we stitch these marsh cozies and weave together our fears and dreams for our communities and imagine a future Boston protected by a blanket of salt marsh.  For more information, contact andi.sutton@gmail.com.

Why we’re stitching together…

Stitching the Shore is part of Marsh Radio Island, a project of Plotform that activates the interconnectedness of humans and plants in the urban port city ecosystem of Boston and considers anew the role that plants play in protecting and supporting all life on the planet.
