Join Artist Phil Ferguson who will be stitching up a storm and talking through the process and motivation behind the hugely successful Instagram account @chiliphilly. Bring your own crochet project along and see how Phil uses a craft from the past in contemporary practice.
After studying sculpture at Curtin University Phil Ferguson moved to Melbourne to live and work in 2014. Phil took up crocheting outrageous hats and posting them on the social media platform, Instagram, as a way of connecting and making new friends. An overwhelmingly positive response has seen @chiliphilly gain over 135,000 followers and flourish as a pop-culture icon. Please bring your own crochet or knitting project to stitch away with Phil.
