Let’s crochet a graffiti together at Ruttopuisto while enjoying a nice park picnic on the Restaurant Day!
Bring your friend (and your take-away food from one of the pop-up restaurants if you like) and sit down with us for a brief or a longer moment to chat and crochet. We are crocheting a huge chain that we’ll use to decorate two “Trees of Dreams” in Ruttopuisto for the Knit ‘n’ Tag event.
The trees will tell stories about dreams that people have regarding the new Keskustakirjasto (City Library), while also standing as witnesses of the empowering and connecting power of handicrafts.
Tens of people between the ages of 4 to 82 years old have already taken part in crocheting the chain. We’ve organized workshops at the Pavilion on two weekends during the spring / summer, where people of different nationalities, backgrounds and ages have taken part in the project, some so taken away by it that they’ve decided to continue the project at home, and I’ve got the most colorful crochet chain deliveries to Paloni from these people.

The idea and realization of the crochet project is done in cooperation by Paloni, Molla Mills and Keskustakirjasto 2017.
Here‘s the event on Facebook.
