About Croshare

Croshare has its roots in artist Sharon Bennett’s ‘Learning Project’: Sharon welcomed friends and family members to pass on knowledge and skills to her in an exploration of the relationship between the master and the apprentice. Sharon approached designer-maker Tom Jeram-West and asked them to teach her how to crochet in 2012, a task to which they took enthusiastically in the hope of not only imparting knowledge and skill, but also passion for the craft.

Sharon has since become a keen crocheter, and Croshare was born from her suggestion to create a project as part of which the knowledge of, and skills and passion for, crochet she had acquired might be shared in larger, public settings; and one in which the performance of the acts of teaching and learning became art, echoing the ethos of her ‘Learning Project’.
