Patch Project invites LGBTQIA+ people to create a patch artwork to contribute to a wall hanging that will be included in exhibitions and donated to a community group. You can draw, paint, sew, glue, write or collage onto material or paper, and then post it back.
Our patches come together to form a collaborative artwork, showing diverse stories in collective spaces. Sharing our stories allows us to be seen, heard and represented.
This event aims to be accessible and inclusive, suggestions are welcome.
1. Start with a 20 x 20cm piece of material (not too thin)
2. Decorate it any way you want
3. Post it to: Patch Project, 100 Drummond St, Carlton Vic 3053.
You can request a material square + stamped envelope - message me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org
What can I use to make my patch?
Anything that can be glued to a larger piece of calico and hung on a wall.
Ideas for decorating:
- Recycle - use found and up-cycled materials.
- Create - images, symbols, comics, colours, patterns, words, a story, poetry.
- Draw or paint with pens, markers, glitter glue, acrylic or puff paint.
- Collage - paper, magazine images, lace, wool, leather, etc.
- Embroidery, needlepoint, crochet, appliqué, sew - sequence, feathers, buttons, beads.
- Stencil, screen print, block print, eco dye, bedazzle.
The usual restrictions apply – no hate speech, no discrimination, no disrespecting others. This is an opportunity to share our stories and express ourselves. If you want to make explicit content, go for it, we’ll group those together.
