Discover how textiles shape communities before and after the internet.
This open workshop will bring together crafters, hackers, makers and members of the public to collectively sew the definition of ‘data’ from the Embroidered Digital Commons project, a collective artwork initiated by artist Ele Carpenter to contribute to current debates on collective making in code, textiles and digital culture. As part of the workshop, designer Rose Sinclair will lead a discussion on Dorcas societies of the 1950-60s, which brought together Caribbean women through textiles and acted as networks for social and economic change. The untold oral stories of Dorcas society members will be told through an accompanying installation.
