Explorations in Fibre
0.50 Credit(s)
The students will be exposed to alternative structures of "fabric" textiles, namely tapestry, paper and felt making as well as manipulated machine-worked surfaces and assemblages. In each of these approaches, students will be constructing with fibre in "off loom" or non-woven methods. Imagery, plus two- and three-dimensional concept development will be integrated into their explorations. The course will be delivered using lectures, demonstrations, in-class discussions and one-on-one (individual) critiques of original works while they acquaint themselves with new processes. Projects are designed to implement the students' new skills and to challenge their creativity and concept development.
Notes: There is a consumables fee attached to this course.
Conditions: Requires a minimum grade of 60% to advance to further Material Art & Design studio courses.
