Course No. SEM 267-367-467  Credits: 3.0
Faculty William Lorton

This is an introduction to fiber and material studies. Students will follow materials from the raw state to the finished form, learning how to manipulate them at every stage. Material and process are often bound together, so a wide variety of techniques of making from string, thread and fiber will be covered. Students will learn to make informed material choices based on an understanding of the history and associations of each material. Students will be introduced to contemporary criticism, and questions surrounding craft and the history of art. Open elective.
