A course that looks at places in the contemporary art and textile worlds where artists are assembling reclaimed and everyday objects/materials to create provocative works. The lecture component includes studies in complexity theory, collecting and systems that exhibit underlying patterns. For the studio component, students will learn freeform crochet, fusible appliqué for collage, and connection techniques including riveting, beading and tying.

Here are some samples of other hyperbolic crochet works:
