String, Felt, and Thread

Course No. FIB267  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 form 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. Required 2nd year FMS Majors. Open Elective. Offered fall.
