The Open Drawer Exhibition was a wonderful success. We had heaps of fun meeting new people at our workshops and introducing them to this wonderful way of experiencing maths/science through the medium of crochet.

Ferntree Gully Workshops

Due to popular demand we are now also able to offer Wednesday evening workshops (6pm - 8pm) at the Library for those who cannot make it on Friday afternoons. For consistency, these will also be held the 3rd week of each month.

We had a great start to the Ferntree Gully Community Reef with 12 women arriving to learn more and get inspired. It was wonderful to see the experienced crocheters helping the 'newbies'. Julie's feedback since the workshops is that the women are coming in to show her how they are progressing and sharing their excitement when their first piece starts to crenulate.
Here is a picture of some of the women from the first workshop
