CRFB 227 - Experimental Costume and Performance

3 credits
The garment provides a tangible yet pliable boundary between the space of self and the space of the world. In this introductory fibers studio, students learn costume construction fundamentals (hand and machine sewing, millinery, flat pattern design, etc.) and explore the garment as a vehicle for personal expression. Students are encouraged to experiment with technique, and a variety of both traditional and unconventional materials are used. Concurrent with studio work, students are introduced to the cultural, political, social, historic, and aesthetic dimensions of costume as it relates to contemporary art. The semester concludes with a collaborative performance.

Priority enrollment to Crafts & Multidisciplinary majors.
