Nicole Asselin is a designer and educator based in Durham, North Carolina. Her work explores the intersection of design, craft, technology and the natural world.

‚Äč

Asselin’s work embraces and reimagines techniques and practices from fiber and textiles traditions. Her projects are narrative, telling the story of a material or material process and its’ potential both real and imagined. The designs are purpose-driven, informed from a historic perspective and applied within a contemporary or futuristic lens. Multi-sensory, boundary pushing and concerned with the anthropocene, Asselin’s multimedia practice asks the viewer to intimately engage with a material and its applications and ultimately discover its potential and value. 

Asselin holds a Master’s Degree in Art and Design from North Carolina State University, and a B.A. in Costume Design and Gender Studies from Bennington College. She teaches courses in art and design fundamentals, textile design, weaving, natural dye practices, and leather working.  She offers classes and workshops nationally and internationally at North Carolina State University, The Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn New York, The Cordwainer’s Garden at the London College of Fashion, The Here Today Here Tomorrow Studio Collective in London, Etsy Labs, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Gardens, The Queens Country Farm Museum, and West Elm. Her work and research is published in Selvedge Magazine, Edible Brooklyn, the New York Times, The International Astronauitcal Congress, and The Textile Society of America.
