Canceled - Contemporary Fiber Art
This course is designed to teach students about using fiber in a contemporary context. We will explore the various methods and techniques for fabric manipulation. Each student will make a notebook of samples utilizing various techniques. This notebook will supply the artist with a group of fiber arts techniques to use in their own art work. Within the fiber arts spectrum are a myriad of materials and techniques to choose from. Fabrics will include cotton, silk, linen, wool and synthetics. Techniques will include various methods of fusing, sewing, and deconstruction. We will work primarily in a two-dimensional format. This course will expose students to the ways in which fabric can be manipulated through sewing and fusing (hot work). In addition to learning sewing techniques they will learn how to use various fusible products that are on the market. Students will learn how different fabrics respond to manipulation. Read our interview with Kim about her work and the class. Prerequisite: none.
