New Practices in Fiber Arts
In this five-week workshop you will explore some of the non-traditional trends in fiber arts and experiment with new ways to make or augment your fiber work. Each week we will investigate a different form including: new materials and invented textiles, site specific work, politics/activism/ action, collaborative processes and practices, and the intersection of technology and fiber arts.
Note: Students do not need to be an expert in a fiber art field however basic knowledge of sewing, knitting, weaving, basketry, and/ or paper making provides a helpful foundation for the information and projects presented in this class.
