Held as part of Plotform’s Marsh Radio Island, Stitching the Shore is a collaborative crochet session to stitch floating salt marsh islands before they’re deployed in the Boston Harbor. This workshop—for veteran and inexperienced crochet stitchers alike—will result in community crocheted connective tissue between prototype salt marsh modules. Bring old cotton sheets and clothes to make recycled crochet yarn. Bring questions, thoughts, and dreams about our coasts, our weather, and climate change and imagine a future Boston protected by a blanket of salt marsh.
