Open Crocheting by (young)MAK

Transitory crocheting with Alexandra Fruhstorfer

Registration closed
Designer and researcher Alexandra Fruhstorfer demonstrates a sophisticated circular concept for yarn with her work Transitory Yarn, being shown in the MAK Design Lab. Items of clothing are unraveled and reprocessed, by which means the resource is preserved over several product life cycles. A new material standard is suggested for the textile industry with a yarn cone for a lifetime. 
Together with (young)MAK, we invite to the open, discursive workshop series Open Crocheting! Textile crafts techniques (crocheting in the first step) are learned and applied with the aim of encountering one another. Textile discourse, technique and materiality knit, or, more precisely, crochet together. Artists, thinkers, scientists, as well as crafts technicians will be invited to provide impulses, passing on their approaches as artistic, content, and technical impulses, and as inspiration or assistance in the context of short lectures, performances, or presentations. Visitors are encouraged to join in on discussions, stories, gossip, and chats, and especially in crocheting!
