Workshop at Philadelphia University | 2016
How can three-dimensional forms be created by using classical handicraft techniques like weaving, knitting or crocheting? Within the working groups, we analysed those techniques and experimented with possibilities to distort the regular structure. My group decided to work with the crochet and crocheted a three-dimensional, twisted form. The one week long 3D Textiles workshop took place at Philadelphia University. The group work largely benefited from an international as well as interdisciplinary body of students. My group consisted of Jasmine Mealy (Industrial Design), Drew McKevitt (Textile Design) and Dylan Catino (Architecture).
