Granny Squares are the New Black

Crochet begins with the Granny Square! You know the one, you’ve seen it in the pile of colourful blankets on your granny’s couch, or in the cheerful blanket that always hung over the back of your grandad’s favourite chair. But a granny square isn’t just a blanket. A basic crochet Granny Square can become anything you want! A cosy blanket? Sure. A bright cushion? Why not? A snuggly jumper? Now we’re talking! The end product is only limited by your imagination. In this three hour workshop, you will be provided with all the tools needed to create your first (of many) granny squares as well as the inspiration and confidence to continue to fill your life with granny squares & crochet goodness! About the teachers: Cass and Maddy met as neighbours 6 years ago and bonded instantly over their love of crafting and crochet. After many a crafternoon, they decided to turn this crafty love into a business, blooming into their collective, Coral and Cactus at the beginning of 2017. Cass discovered a love for crochet whilst nursing her first kidlet and passed on her passion & knowledge of the craft to Maddy, teaching her to make her first granny square only 3 years ago. From that point on, Maddy was as hooked as Cass for making everything from blankets, to teddies, to jumpers and more & more…!

This event is hosted by the Beeliar Group and UWA Publishing and supported by the City of Fremantle. WHAT WE ARE CELEBRATING: Almost exactly a year after the fences went up around the Roe 8 reserve, the Beeliar Group and their community partners are launching their book on the Roe 8 saga: Never Again - Reflections on Environmental Responsibility after Roe 8 written by The Beeliar Group and published by UWA Publishing. The lead-up to the 2017 Western Australian state election saw a large and lively protest over the construction of stage 8 of the Roe Highway (Roe 8) and the Perth Freight Link. Years of opposition to Roe 8 culminated in civil disobedience, mass arrests and media theatrics as the bulldozers tore across Aboriginal heritage sites and through much-loved bushland and wetland just weeks out from an election the government appeared likely to lose. When Labor was swept to power in the biggest landslide victory ever delivered by Western Australian voters the Roe 8 contracts were cancelled and regeneration of the damaged area commenced.  This book traces the history of Roe 8 and the Perth Freight Link and records the diverse and vigorous resistance to the project. It illuminates what was at stake in the conflict and makes recommendations for action across transport, planning, environmental law, health and Aboriginal heritage policy areas to ensure that Western Australian people and environments never again have such a damaging project thrust upon them.  Pre-order the book now on the publishers website at the recommended retail price of $29.99 or Purchase the book at the book launch event at a discounted price of $24.99
