Textile Structures

AR 215 - Textile Structures - 4

Exploration of the sculptural properties of planes based on building single and multiple-element surfaces. Studies in fused and single-element structure (felting, netting, knotting, plaiting, hand and machine knitting) will be followed by the focus of the courseloom weaving (including the use of the computer-assisted loom). Students will construct three-dimensional structures based on individual expression. Readings in textile history and contemporary art issues, writing, and discussion will complement technical grounding in traditional textile processes.

Prerequisite: AR115 or permission of the instructor. Lab fee $55
