The Milkweed Project is a collaborative artwork currently in progress. Hundreds of fiber artists and crafters are knitting, crocheting, felting and spinning white and off-white creations that will be assembled into a giant milkweed pod. The final, assembled piece is intended to capture the essence of a milkweed pod; its soft, ethereal beauty and its importance to the natural world.
The Milkweed Project is about our connection to each other, to nature, to the past, present and future.
Shan Bryan-Hanson, the project architect, is an artist and teacher.
