Coral Crochet

It’s a busy and visual week at the Out the Box festival in Cape Town. I’m enjoying seeing loads of theatre crammed into this first week of Spring.

The festival has a strong ‘green/ec0/planet friendly’ contingent this year & I was delighted to come across this crocheted coral wall at the Magnet Theatre.

It’s called the Woodstock Art Reef Project, a satellite project connected to the worldwide Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef Project. ” a woolly celebration of the intersection of higher geometry and feminine handicraft, and a testimony to the disappearing wonders of the marine world.”

It’s voluntary and it’s gorgeous!  If you would like to be an eco-warrior with a crochet needle, you can find out more about the Cape Town group here.

These are beautiful, they were on display in Sea Point Library for a while too. Great photo 🙂
