Fibre: 3D Structures in Sculptural Form
0.50 Credit(s)
From the work of Claes Oldenburg to the provocative installations of Tracey Emin, textiles have offered a powerful alternative to the language of sculpture. This course will focus on developing sculptural form in textiles, utilizing the tools of pattern drafting and sewn construction. Students will learn: how to alter two-dimensional drawings to create drafted patterns, how to take patterns from existing three dimensional objects in order to create a fabric facsimile and how to develop sculptural form through free-form pattern making. Projects will encompass a range of scale, from making hand-held objects through to environmental works. Throughout the course, the use of sewn work in contemporary art and design will be presented as background reference to each assignment.
