When Offered: Last offered fall 2019.
Instructor(s): M. Teixido
Credit: 1

Fiber Studio is an exploration of the practices of fiber and textile arts.

An understanding developed in studio practice will consider the contemporary context of textile as art and its relationship to craft. Areas of concentration will be spinning, knitting, weaving, sewing, and embroidery. Exposure to textile work of the present and past in images and through visiting artists, and trips to see textile work as part of collections and in production, will add to our understanding of the practice. Readings and invited speakers will add to our awareness of the socio-historical context of many forms of fiber art and its framing in culture past and present. Letter grade only.
