Exploring Coding Stitching Culture.

None
Many cultures have distinctive textile crafts, and how textiles are decorated often celebrates the culture of their creator. Participants have the opportunity to create designs through coding, expressing their own cultural heritage, in a medium that can be stitched by a digital embroidery machine, and to exhibit them in a Mozfest gallery. Turtlestitch is freely available software that enables the generation and stitching of patterns using a digital embroidery machine, giving programmatic control of the machine. The session starts with a brief round robin presentation highlighting projects celebrating coding stitching culture around the world. Participants can then join one of several workshop groups, or explore existing projects and meet their creators. Tutorial groups are led by individuals from home or workshops. Participants are encouraged to create their own design and add them to the Mozfest gallery, a selection of these designs will be stitched live during workshops
