Wild Crochet with Diedre Brown

If it were possible to create a habitable textile, what would it look like? Could this textile evolve to become nature?  

Like nature, the resiliency of textiles is a story of form. A mystery of geometric interplays, textiles are ever present yet not fully understood.  

Join Work In Progress resident Diedre Brown to explore these questions, while learning more about natural hyperbolic structures and crocheting wild textiles.  

Yarn and crochet hooks provided, but feel free to bring your own.

Diedre integrates principles of the natural sciences, art, design, and research to comprehend the anatomy and physiology of all things. Holder of a Master of Architecture from Parsons The New School of Design, Diedre applies her knowledge to developing integrated and interwoven urban intervention design systems. Learn more about her work and her Work In Progress residency here. You can visit Diedre's installation for Work In Progress from September 1 - 30 and learn more about her work and process during Artist Open Hours, on Saturdays, 2-5PM and Tuesday - Thursday 11am-5pm, at our Manhattan studio.
