Art Lab: Binary Beading

May 29, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

 As you know, we do love coding AND crafting here at Art Lab…. but did you know modern code has its origin in traditional craft? 

Jacquard loom punchcards were one of the first forms of binary information sharing, so today we celebrate by crafting our own beautiful Jacquard pieces. Then learn how to code your name in binary, and make a personalised bag tag or piece of jewellery to take home with you. 

This workshop accompanies Clare Phelan’s solo exhibition ‘Do Not Fold Spindle or Mutilate’, on show in the Wigan STEAM Gallery from Sat 26th May – Sat 16th June.

This workshop is suitable for any age from 8+
