Join us for our first meeting of the year! Our guild house is directly linked to Philly’s textile past, and it seems fitting to hear Andrew speak about its future in such a building.
Andrew Dahlgren- Knitting Philadelphia Together
September 4th | 7pm
Andrew Dahlgren is a designer, organizer, maker and teacher. He studied industrial design as an undergraduate at North Carolina State University’s College of Design and in graduate school at the University of the Arts’ Master of Industrial Design program. Outside of his formal education, Andrew has worked as a wood worker and metal fabricator. He has produced custom furniture, architectural specialities, art work, taking on each step of the process from designer to producer to project manager.
Dahlgren’s emphasis is on developing a regional knitting industry based on sound ideas for technology distribution and production hubs. His previous studies of permaculture infuse a biologically influenced structure into his conceptual diagrams for sparking industry. According Dahlgren, knitting, as a single strand or stream technology, transmutes into an elegant model for industry in the new millennium as Dahlgren sees it.
