CRFB 221 - Fabric Resist & Embellishment


Extends students’ basic color and drawing vocabulary through exposure to ancient techniques and tools of Indonesia, Japan, and Africa. Fabric dyeing and resist methods are addressed, including drawing and stamping with waxes, stitching and binding with threads, etc. Students acquire a broader sense of “mark-making,” an understanding of the special color properties of dyes, and an ability to use non-Western traditional craft methods to create contemporary art fabric. Formerly CR 277
