The fiber program provides instruction in two major areas: surface design and fiber construction. The fiber curriculum includes traditional and nontraditional techniques, not as an end in themselves, but as a means to develop a vocabulary for contemporary expression. The design process and its relationship to materials and techniques is stressed at introductory levels. Advanced students are encouraged to focus and develop a strong personal direction.
The fiber studio has facilities for dying, printing and papermaking and is organized to accommodate a broad range of surface design processes. An adjacent weaving area provides space for loom and off-loom processes including tapestry, basketry, and feltmaking.
Nationally recognized artists and professionals in textile related fields are often invited to lecture and conduct workshops. We use our regional galleries and museums as resources for both contemporary and historical work in fiber.
