Whether drawing with a needle and thread or coloring a picture using patterned fabric instead of crayons, students in this course explore many fundamental and traditional skills developed in the art studio through the tactile materials used in the fiber arts. Techniques such as embroidery, quilting and weaving allow students to explore both two- and three-dimensional artmaking, and to discover innovative ways to express themselves while making functional and nonfunctional textile art. Each session the class explores a different technique: weaving, felting, embroidery, funky quilts and fiber collage.
