KNIT OR CROCHET FOR A CAUSE

knitting

Come knit or crochet a project of your choice. Finished products will be donated to our DACA students as a way to show our support and solidarity with them in this time of great uncertainty. In this process, we aim to build a caring community for one another. No prior experience needed. Materials will be provided. Come and pick up your yarn in Psychological Services Room 127, Registration and Student Services Building. De Anza College starting Monday November 6, 2017 or follow the Red Cart on the De Anza Campus every Wednesday from 11:00am to 1:00pm (Weather Permitting).

Psych and health team

 By accepting this skein of yarn, you will be challenged to create an artwork in consideration of the plight & wellbeing of an OTHER (a friend in need, a DREAMER student, a parent who is ill etc) with the goal of giving your artwork to this OTHER.

 It is hoped that as you work on the artwork, you yourself will:

  • Slow down

  • Take time away from electronic stimulation

  • Spend time with others in conversation and interaction while you work

  • Develop the capacity to be alone should you choose to work on your own

  • Discover your ability to use your hands to create something beautiful

  • Be curious about the OTHER in the community

 

More information about upcoming workshops will be provided in the Fall quarter of 2017.
