Histories and current practices of stitching are rich with resistance. The accumulated images and forms created through stitch speak of labour, care and spaces of individual and collective agency. Through research and experimentation students will develop skills and knowledge relating to the rich historical, social and cultural meanings embedded in these processes and produce creative and conceptual projects. Throughout this course students will explore the potential of these images and forms as much as push the boundaries of the process of stitching itself.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. demonstrate competency with a range of stitching techniques as a medium for visual expression and design;
  2. demonstrate creative exploration, experimentation and integration of ideas, materials and techniques, through class and individual projects; and
  3. apply knowledge of the historical, cultural and theoretical contexts and contemporary practices relevant to stitching as a medium for visual arts through development and execution of studio projects and research.
