Stitched: A Contemporary Look at Photography and Textiles

We interact with textiles every day—we wear them close to our skin, decorate our homes with them, use them to carry objects, and even sleep within them. Textiles tell stories, and they hold memories. As objects and as a material, fabrics are personal and intimate.

Join HCP instructor Kelly Webeck and discover artists whose experimentation with fabrics, thread, and weavings has led to beautiful and strange photographs and photo-based installations. These woven pixels have been an influential part of the contemporary climate of the changing definition of photography. As a class, students will discuss the choices that artists make and examine their work closely to gain a deeper understanding of the meaning that the material and process add to the experience of the work. Over two class sessions, students will grow their visual language and understanding of photographic theory and expand their knowledge of art history. Additionally, students will be introduced to materials and resources for printing their own photographs on textile materials.
