Event description


Join us for a special experience as Melbourne Architect Claire Scorpo reveals the origins of STITCHFIELD, a site-specific installation originally commissioned by Design Tasmania, recreated exclusively for DESIGN-MADE.


Limited spaces are available for each session, reserve your ticket now and attend for free.

Each talk includes a rare opportunity join this contemporary making session, with visitors able to help build this very special crafted design installation.


STITCHFIELD uses brass components that fit and fold together in a non-prescribed pattern to create a suspended metallic weave that floats suspended above the SUNSTUDIOS Atrium.

The circular components, and the possibilities of endless formations celebrate the often undervalued ‘Knitting Circle’ and similar maker gatherings; sites of knowledge transfer and collaboration.

Originally STITCHFIELD was woven by different groups of women during Women in Design 2016, and debuts in Sydney with thanks to our friends at Design Tasmania.

For the first time Sydney visitors can have the opportunity for conversation and company through making as they can get hands-on with this interactive making installation.

The natural brass allows the fingerprints of the makers to be embedded within the piece through its assembly, contributing to its raw beauty.

STITCHFIELD Features in the SUNSTUDIOS Atrium at the Febrik Lounge, at the entrance 42 Maddox Street, Alexandria 2015.
