PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Once relegated primarily to the realm of craft, textiles now hold critical importance in the world of contemporary art. After looking at a variety of such examples, students will design, sew and embroider flags that address various issues affecting youth from local and global perspectives. Upcycled fabrics, a range of embroidery hoops and a colourful selection of embroidery floss will be provided, though students are also encouraged to bring materials of personal significance to incorporate into their artworks.

  • Full day
