Who are we?
Chason Yeboah and Tumaini Lyaruu are self and community taught crochet artists living, learning, loving and creating in Toronto. Together we created Acts of Kindness (AoK!) to use our crochet abilities for good instead of evil! What started out as us coordinating yarn bombs and giving out little crochet hearts to people who have been kind, became an arts education project where we started to going around the city hosting crochet picnics (workshops), largely in community/school based settings, sharing the skill of crochet with children, youth and adults.
Part of our arts education practice is to guide people through the process of learning how to crochet, which is rarely neutral. It holds a lot of people’s anxieties, frustrations, aspirations and emotions. While our role is to provide guidance on gaining a technical skill, it also involves intentionally facilitating room for people to engage, and make meaning of the skill and process as best suits their needs. We also really like for our crochet picnics to be a fun get together to connect with others.
