About Blooming

The idea for 'Blooming - A Fiber Arts Installation', grew from the understanding that the act of crafting, or making, can have positive mental health benefits. The installation takes place in May to honor Mental Health Awareness Month. 

Blooming volunteers were asked to focus on the theme of ‘geometry and shapes’.  Communal crafting workshops for folks of all skill levels were held at different locations across campus over the course of several months, culminating with the installation of the project on Friday, May 17, 2024.  It will remain on display until June 2, 2024 at Firestone East Plaza.
