Gather in a relaxed atmosphere with crafters of all levels, in all fields—knitting, crocheting, beading, sewing, weaving, journaling, ceramics, and more—for an hour of live music, conversation about crafts, tips on stress release for your hands, and time to work on and share your craft in the company of other crafters. Saxophonist Tim Hall and classical/flamenco guitarist Ria Modak ’22 will provide live music during the event.

Developed as part of Harvard University’s wellness days, this virtual event is open to everyone and is a partnership of the Office for the Arts at Harvard, American Repertory Theater, and The Center for Wellness at Harvard.
