In this captivating talk, craft researcher and founder of Common Threads Press, Laura Moseley, will map the different articulations of queer identity in needlework practices since the mid-20th century. By analysing fabric, colour, technique and processes of making, Laura will look at the different ways in which queer artists have deployed embroidery and quilting in their work.

Departing from the work of second-wave feminists that worked to reinstate needlework as an emblem of 'women's work', Laura will discuss how textile crafts have since  become a central focus for queer artists working with similar themes of inheritance, identity and memory.
