Stitch ‘n Bitch with Michelle Hamer

Sun 16 Oct 2022

This is a past program.
Main exhibition gallery

Bring your knitting needles, embroidery hoops or any other craft materials and join us for an afternoon of stitching and bitching alongside ACCA’s current exhibition Paul Yore: WORD MADE FLESH.

You can bring a project you’re already working on, or start something new. These artist-led sessions are open to all experience levels and are LGBTIQA+ and queer friendly.


Michelle Hamer explores how language around us reflects societal fears, beliefs & aspirations. Based primarily on her own photographs & collected language, works negotiate a space between 2D and 3D.

With its darkly humorous delivery, works oscillate between fast and slow; past and present; analogue and digital. Both personal and political in tone, her hand-stitched, drawn, video and LED works examine familiar and revealing, though rarely captured, moments within ‘everyday’ life.

With over thirty solo exhibitions, Hamer’s current shows include the Contextile Biennial, Portugal, Lodz Tapestry Triennial, Poland and a video work showing nightly at Federation Square, Melbourne.
