The Seed Stitchers

The Seed Stitchers, an exhibition by The Seed Stitch Collective

The artworks in this exhibition are informed by textile techniques, material qualities and making processes. They extend traditional craft practice into new areas of technical and conceptual terrain. Common to all is the connection formed between maker and material, material and ideas through intimate and considered engagement and their relationship with the textile medium.

The Seed Stitchers are seven Sydney contemporary textile artists who collaborate on exhibitions and have initiated a biannual textile art prize: Soraya Abidin, Sky Carter, Alana Clifton-Cunningham, Suzanne Davey, Gillian Lavery, Niki McDonald and Emma Peters.

Details: Sunday 8 October – Monday 16 October
