GRFB 322 - Advanced Textile Design

1.5 credits
This course uses the computer in the study of woven textile design. An introduction to fabric structures from simple, plain and rib weaves, through twills, satins, waffle weaves, double-cloth, composite structures, and color effects. Students learn the language of cloth through the incremental development of structures, first making notation of those structures by hand on point paper, and then using various computer software programs to develop a wide range of fabric structures. At least one structure is realized through weaving on a 32-harness handweaving computer loom.
