Experimental Stitched Structures

Course Code: ARTS2474

Explore stitching as a drawing technique by combining machine and hand stitching with different types of Sulky® water soluble stabilizers. Use sewing to create lines and dynamic textures, focusing on constructing stitched and mixed media surfaces using machine embroidery and water soluble stabilizer in a variety of ways to create lace-like structures where stitch holds the piece together. Along with threads, experiment with combining an assortment of materials like plastics, papers, and yarns to create a variety of samples exploring different texture and colour combinations. You will be encouraged to express and grow your own ideas to create one-of-a-kind stitched 3D sculptures, wall works or wearable art pieces, depending on your interest. No experience is necessary but basic sewing machine operation skills will be helpful. You will be required to bring a familiar and reliable sewing machine in good working order.
