Embrace the beauty of the fail with artist Andrew Healey and his Stitch'n'Glitch workshop. Mixing the low-tech with the hands-on, learn how to use open-source software to corrupt an image of your choice and convert it to patterns suitable for cross-stitching. The aim of the workshop is to make explicit the relationship between textiles and computing by exploring the pixel's relationship to the stitch. Participants have the option to bring their laptop or an image they'd like to work on. Alternatively, a selection of images will be provided.
