NWOSU Art Society Winners’ Show, Basic Crocheting Workshop at Runnymede April 5

April’s First Friday Art Walk at the Runnymede on April 5 will feature the winning entries from the Northwestern Oklahoma State University Art Society Art Show as well as a workshop teaching basic crocheting skills.

This is the 21st year for the university art show that will close on campus March 29. All winning pieces of art will be displayed on the first level of the Runnymede from 6-8 p.m. free of charge. Light refreshments will be served.

Dr. Mary Riegel, professor of mathematics at Northwestern, and Dr. Jenny Sattler, associate professor of physics, will be leading the crochet workshop for beginners where participants will learn or enhance their basic skills such as working in the rounds and in rows. Riegel noted that participants will be using a combination of stitches, pattern/chart reading, making color changes, finishing and more. The workshop will take place on the second floor from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Cost of the workshop is $15 and is limited to 15 people. Supplies for the workshop will be provided. Those interested in attending the workshop are asked to pre-register by emailing
