Session: The Art of Crochet for Fun & Relaxation

Hosted by: Susan Barry, Rebekka Ebersole and Kelley Williams
An introduction to the art of crochet. Many of you probably have a family heirloom from your grandmother. There are so many beautiful techniques and patterns today……learn to crochet and create your own unique gifts and heirlooms. It’s a great way to relax, focus, and prompt your creativity…… In this session, beginners will learn the basics:  supplies, how to read a pattern, simple techniques, and you will start a small project. If you have yarn and/or hooks, bring them! If not, supplies will be provided, and participants will receive an information sheet for reference. All levels of experience are welcome. If you are experienced, bring your supplies to share your knowledge and help a beginner, or learn a new stitch!

Session: Speed Networking

Tuesday, May 23
10:00 - 11:00

HEN 210

Join us for this fast-paced ‘get-to-know-you’ session to learn more about the people you work with! This interactive session will give you the chance to meet new colleagues, get to know some of the old ones better and you might learn a few helpful tips along the way. Chatting in small groups, you’ll have five minutes to discuss a question and share your views. Some questions are serious, and some are a bit silly – the question is simply luck of the draw! When the five minutes are up, head on over to a different table for a new question, new perspectives, and some new friends!  Think of it like ‘speed networking’ – by the end of the session you’ll have had the chance to interact with everyone in the room and maybe even win a prize. Join us for a couple of laughs and some helpful tips, and maybe make a new friend or two!
