Advanced Fiber Arts

AR 315 - Advanced Fiber Arts - 4

A continued exploration and development of personal interpretations of traditional and nontraditional methods of textile design and fiber construction. Students may elect to concentrate in the area of weaving or textile design, or may develop skills in both areas concurrently. Advanced weaving will include multi-harness weave structure on jack-type, computer, and dobby looms. Advanced textile design will include printed resists, photo screen-printing, lacquer stencils, gouache rendering, and computer-aided design. It is strongly recommended that students intending to work in both areas complete both AR215 and 216 prior to electing this course. Personal initiative and creative self-expression are emphasized in this course.

Prerequisite: AR215 or 216. May be taken for credit three times with permission of instructor. Lab fee: $55
