This project merges two distinct traditions: contemporary 3D printing and traditional craft. In Hybrid Basketry, 3D printed structures are shaped to allow the growth and development of hand‐woven patterns. While the 3D printed plastic elements contribute to the aesthetics of the digital curvatures and manifolds, the hand‐woven reed, jute, and canvas fibers infuse the baskets with a unique organic appeal.
