Survivalist Sampler workshop with Sera Waters

#survivalistsampler | Saturday 21 August 2021 | 10AM - 1PM

This workshop expands upon Waters’ #survivalistsampler project. This began as a call out on Instagram in 2020 for fellow stitchers to create their own sampler to record and reflect upon surviving this time in history. There was community and care to be found in stitching apart, together. In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to develop their own survivalist sampler through stitch. Basic stitch techniques will be covered as we work upon our samplers, however the emphasis will be upon developing ideas, sharing experiences and discussing the translation of these into stitched ‘sampled’ expressions.

Participants are asked to bring along a textile base for their sampler/stitched work. Sera encourages the use of textiles with a history; family, found, second-hand and used materials, including pieces of linen or cotton around the size of tea towels (napkins, runners, and tea towels themselves are great substrates). While threads, scissors, washable fabric markers and more will be available to share, please feel free to bring along your own supplies if you have them already.

The #survivalistsampler project has been developed within Future Traditions,  a visual arts project enabled by the 2020 Guildhouse Fellowship, with Art Gallery of South Australia and supported by the James & Diana Ramsay Foundation.
