Crochet Skill Share Series: Make a Study Buddy

Date / Time

April 4, 2024

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Crochet Skill Share Series

1-2 p.m.

UIC Disability Cultural Center (BSB 235) and on Zoom

Community Care Skill Shares are open to everyone (whether you identify as disabled, nondisabled or somewhere between).

Build your skills all semester long.

This is a series of workshops led by Paloma Araujo, a DCC student worker and Community Care Cohort intern. In each workshop, we will learn new skills that will build on each other toward our final project to crochet your own study buddy.

What does crochet have to do with disability?

Crochet is not only a creative and relaxing hobby; it can also be a form of documentation, meaning-making, and a way to build community and care for one another.

Thursday, April 4

  • Make your own study buddy.

In-person: The DCC will provide the supplies, including accessibility tools like crochet rings, hook grips and stitch markers.

On Zoom: Bring whatever tools and supplies you have! We recommend a 5 mm crochet hook, colorful yarn, scissors and a yarn needle.

COVID-19 safety: UIC does not require masking, but we are continuing to mask indoors as an accessibility measure for sick/immunocompromised folks and those living interdependently with them. Please wear a mask if it’s accessible for you! We’ll have extras on hand.

Access info: The DCC is accessible by elevator, and we will have CART (live captions) in the Zoom and projected. For any questions or access requests, email or call 312-355-7050.
