Free Form Crochet and the Coral Reef Project

A couple of years ago, Robin Olsen taught me how to free-form crochet. It's funky, uses up a variety left over yarn, creates wonderful color and texture.
Here's a information about the Coral Reef Project from the Institute for Figuring. Click on Coral Reef and enter another world. Exhibits are listed for NYC, Chicago and other locations. The larger than life "Coral Garden" created by an Australian artist, Helen Lancaster, really stands out. Locally, Gossamer supports this project to get the word out about the rapid destruction of world coral reefs through global warming. Can you believe these are crocheted? Get out your crochet hook and make coral reefs.
