Concepts in Contemporary Fibers - FAC 432

This course is designed to allow students to pursue in more depth the ideas and techniques introduced in FAC 332 “Application in fibers” and FAC 342 “Surface Design”. Students investigate contemporary uses of weaving, printing, knitting, or any improvised construction techniques. Using both handlooms and dobby looms, students may explore more possibilities in weaving. Material quality, color, and potential end use will be part of the criteria for analyzing work. Students' work can range from installations to two-dimensional pieces. Prerequisites: FAC 332 and FAC 342.
