Are you curious about adding textile embroidery to your research practice? The Textile + Materiality research cluster has a limited number of spots left in the upcoming Merit of Making Workshop giving other Milieux cluster members a chance to participate!
Drawing With Threads: Materializing Data – Instructor: Gen Moisan
What does Big Data look like? How do we visually materialize information? In this workshop, we invite you to consider how data may be materialized through the transformation of vectors into simple embroidered forms.
Participants will learn design techniques and software basics required to stitch continuous line drawings onto textiles using colourful threads or yarns using the digital thread placement machine in the Textiles and Materiality Cluster.
The workshop will be two hours long, with additional time reserved for participants to produce their designs.
