Abstract

Crochet Connections: An Intergenerational Fibre Craft Project was a research study that brought together Sheridan students and older adults from the community to participate in a crochet group. The research team examined whether an intergenerational group, organized as an activity-based program, could positively benefit participant well-being. This report outlines results from an eight-week crochet program implemented in Fall 2022 at Sheridan College’s Davis Campus in Brampton, Ontario. As an outcome of the crochet group, seven handmade blankest were donated to charity. The study was approved by Sheridan’s Research Ethics Board and funded by a 2022 Sheridan Generator Growth Grant.
