Knit and Crochet Artists No basketball court should be without a net. With that said, the Knit & Crochet artists have a call for submissions to cure what they have dubbed as the empty net syndrome. A little back court info: over a year ago NCAA (New Craft Artists in Action) team captain launched MOLTENi Net Works in Boston. Bringing together makers and players in collaborative exchange, the project aims to create functional, hand-crafted basketball nets for neglected public hoops. Inspired by DIY slow production, this process fosters creative problem solving, urban upkeep, and re-purposing of abandoned space to build a pro-active network between artists, athletes, and neighbors.
