Contemporary Textile Project


Have some unfinished craft projects? Or ideas to start something new? This is the course for you.


More details

In this course you will develop a textile project of your choice that could include a range of materials and methods, or something as simple as stitching on fabric. You are welcome to start a new project, or to bring in an existing project or idea to receive ongoing support in bringing it to completion. The course will include an introduction to contemporary textiles and the artists and thinkers that have an impact on contemporary art, as well as critique centered on developing a personal voice and textile instruction. The content will be curated to your project interests and delivered in an encouraging and supportive environment. All skill levels are welcome: this can be your first time undertaking a 6-week project or you can be an established artist looking for a community to bring your questions and receive feedback. Skills will be taught from an anti-mastery perspective, meaning that you don’t have to have mastered a particular skill to create beautiful and insightful work using it. Projects could include sewing, embroidery, knitting, quilting appliqué, weaving or any other textile-related process or a combination of many. There is also an opportunity to incorporate the language of textiles with photography, painting and other work on paper. No textile experience is necessary. Suitable for all levels.
