DQ Blog – Digital Crochet with Imogen Luddy


January 10th, 2011

Hi everyone – a very happy new year to you all!

Here’s something to kick us off…

We discovered Imogen Luddy at the London Design Festival (held in September 2010)… and we’ve been gazing longingly at her work ever since.


Imogen recently graduated from the Royal College of Art (RCA) and her practice encompasses everything from wallpapers, to fabrics, surfaces and desirable products for the interior environment.


She laser-cuts, embroiders, crochets and potters (in the ceramic sense); she applies innovative techniques to traditional crafts… as you can see she’s digitised antique lace, doilies and embroidered samplers to produce some really interesting results.

Here she talks a little more about her work…
