Quilting With Code

Libs Elliott is a textile designer who explores the intersection of technology and traditional craft by using generative design in her work. A deep appreciation for craftsmanship, design history and future-focused applications are all reflected in her work. She studied Material Art & Design at OCAD University and lives and works in Toronto, Canada. As a quilter, Libs' ongoing project is an exploration in how modern technology can transform a traditional and tactile craft into modern functional art without abandoning the inherent pleasures of handcrafted products.

Libs Elliott is known for using computer code and algorithms to create her random quilt patterns. Libs will discuss her ongoing exploration of how technology can transform a traditional craft into modern, functional art. She will show examples of her work in a slide show, give attendees a peek into her process and share some of her real, live quilts.

Libs will be holding two workshops in Perth: La Fin Du Monde and Embrace the Chaos. Find out more about Libs at www.libselliott.com and follow her on instagram.
