The Introduction to Textiles Course
Introduction to Textiles: Cloth + String
This course introduces students working in diverse disciplines to the creative potential of cloth and string. From woven forms to surface design to handwork, students explore a wide range of hands-on textile techniques in both two and three-dimensions including felting, stitching, netting, crocheting, dyeing, fabric printing, and weaving. Students are encouraged to work experimentally and to push the boundaries of the media, using both traditional and non-traditional materials.
Students from ALL majors—from fashion and interior design to sculpture and painting—are invited to discover the physical properties, conceptual principles, and diverse cultural histories of textiles and to incorporate these possibilities into their own fine arts and design practices.
