Embroidery is a millennia-old art form, practiced predominantly by women and passed down from mother to daughter. The craft has morphed and adapted over time as new technologies have influenced it, and the growth of artificial intelligence and computational creativity have the potential to once again transform this handcraft — as you can see with Hoopla, a HUMANS NEED NOT APPLY exhibit that uses an AI system to design embroidery sampler patterns that are then hand-stitched.
On Saturday, 6th May, join Tara Whelan, Cheryl Harding and Maria Francesca, Dublin-based makers and founder members of Lovelace Space, for a Saturday Stitch workshop at Science Gallery Dublin and learn how to hand-stich AI sampler patterns to take home with you. Beginners are welcome and all materials are provided. This workshop is free, but booking is essential.
