#6 Wellness Workshop: Crochet Granny Squares + Live Music
Time & Location
About The Event
WEEKLY WELLNESS WORKSHOP #6
*Please note LEXSA is keeping up to date with the current Covid situation in the Northern Rivers. This workshop is current going ahead. If anything changes, we will inform you.
LEXSA is helping you take a break and stress less weekly with our Wellness Workshops!
In Week 6 you'll learn how to crochet a Granny Square from 11am while enjoying live music from 12pm on Wednesday, 7th of April 2021.
We will be creating the classic Granny Square which is a simple design that can be made using one or multiple colours. We have all the materials you'll need, including different coloured yarn, crochet hooks, scissors and printed instructions. But there's one small difference to this week's workshop - once you create your granny square, you'll have the chance to donate it to a collaborative project LEXSA is hosting. We will be using the granny squares to create a blanket, which one lucky student can win! In the weeks after this workshop, keep an eye on our newsletter and our socials to keep up to date with the blanket's progress and the competition for your chance to win!
We'll set up outside our LEXSA Office in Goodman Plaza under the white umbrella. If wet weather, under the shelter opposite the Thai Cafe.
*Please note students must sanitise before attending this workshop as wool is a soft material. Please register a spot as spaces are limited.
*Only 1 Student per registration as we need your details for Covid purposes. Gloves, hand sanitiser and masks are available for students to use. Please note this event is only for Southern Cross Uni current students. These events will occur on Southern Cross Uni's Lismore campus.
We've got CRYPTID (Daniel + Govinda) performing for you live from 12pm till 1pm (NSW time) in Goodman Plaza. They will also live-stream their gig off Facebook for all our online students and anyone who can't make it to campus. You can watch it later.
Daniel Rorke – Tenor Saxophone
Govinda Abbott – Trumpet
Could an unidentified hominoid Jazz musician survive in the dense sub-tropical forests of Northern NSW? If so, why have we never found Jazz scat? Or at least bones? Emerging from the wilderness comes two barely-upright, semi-sapien Jazz primates. Their agenda: make Jazz weird, foment dissent.
Daniel Rorke unfortunately contracted a PhD in Jazz, rendering him legally unemployable in all states, even Queensland. He has played and recorded with some of the most feared musicians in Europe and New York. His latest record, Naked Allies (Featuring Oscar Noriega of Tim Berne’s Blood Count and Endangered Blood), is available now via Bandcamp on Orenda Records.
Govinda Abbott has lived and worked in Germany and played with many of that country’s most pernicious perpetrators of Jazz and contemporary music. He now inhabits a unique space in the annals of Australian Yowie research, where he attempts to contact the crypids via spiritual conference with the Jazz trumpet. Early data suggests that the Yowies of Nightcap National Park are preferentially attracted to the music of Clifford Brown over that of Don Cherry.
Together they will be performing a set of contemporary composed and improvised music in duet.
