A Stitch In Time - University of Warwick 

Friday 29 & Saturday 30 October

Stitch In Time is a collaborative project between the University of Warwick’s WMG department and local primary schools for Coventry UK City of Culture 2021. Taking inspiration from Coventry’s textiles history, children learn to create embroidery designs by writing computer programs. For October half term WMG are extending this project to give access to families to use Turtlestitch software on laptops, to write a program which instructs a digital embroidery machine to stitch their design. Turtlestitch is a free programming platform created by Andrea Mayr-Stalder and Michael Aschauer.

Through a series of exercises, the children learn to write computer programs to draw out shapes, applying their knowledge of geometry and measurement. Then they create a pattern based on their own design inspired by Coventry, adapting it to take advantage of the greater intricacy which can be achieved by the embroidery machine.
