Fibers (Graduate)


FIBR 502 Materiality and Meaning in Fibers Through a series of workshops, material and process explorations, and independent research, students will work on building a foundation to begin a design or studio practice. The course will explore ways that artists and designers develop ideas and will focus on strengthening skills in materials and process research, drawing, and writing.


FIBR 704 Surfaces and Structures This course introduces graduate-level work in fibers. Each student’s work is analyzed in order to determine a strategy for technical and aesthetic development. An experimental approach to the creation of surfaces and structures is stressed.


FIBR 707 Fabric History as Source Students investigate historical and ethnographic fabrics and their construction as a source for contem- porary fiber artists. Emphasis is on the application of personal research to individual studio work.


FIBR 716 Fiber and Fabric Exploration Students investigate a range of traditional and non- traditional fiber media and processes. Interdisciplin- ary and collaborative approaches to studio work are encouraged. The course also includes research and discussion about artists important to the contempo- rary fibers field.


FIBR 723 Graduate Stitch Diary The focus of this course is the development of working methodologies for students’ traveling and recording the experience through incorporating stitching with multi-media processes. Stitching, drawing, painting, mono-printing and collage are employed as tech- niques to capture the experience of a new landscape. Students draw upon the experience of creating their stitch diaries as a basis on which to develop work to complement their current graduate work and research. Prerequisite(s): FIBR 704.


FIBR 724 Digital Surface Design Studio I Students use textile design software and Adobe Photoshop to produce repeat pattern designs for commercial textiles. This course emphasizes industry standards while covering all phases of the design- process conception, pattern creation and presentation. Special focus is placed on using design input methods, including digital color mixing and digital color output to create industry compatible designs. Final project relates back to students area of concentration.


FIBR 726 Digital Dobby Design Studio This course is designed to give students experience designing and producing woven fabrics using AVL dobby looms and software specifically designed for woven design. Students study woven structure and drafting, and produce fabrics for a specified end use. Students are encouraged to apply their individual artistic and design directions to their design of dobby fabrics.


FIBR 728 Structural Materials and Processes Students explore technical and conceptual issues in the construction of three-dimensional fiber structures. Innovative uses of materials and processes are empha-


sized. Students are introduced to contemporary and historic three- dimensional fiber forms and analyze the context in which the works were produced.


FIBR 730 Graduate Local Cloth, Local Color This course focuses on the investigation of the local resources to examine textiles, processes, environment and media of the area as an adjunct to studio work and research. Graduate students incorporate digital photography, drawings, and textile sampling to create a “Touch Book” to record the local experience that is unique to the regions explored and visited and to develop a personal point of view. Students further the investigation in a study of trend forecasting and mood development for textiles, textile design, and fine art. Students develop a body of work for graduate critique based on that point of view. Prerequisite(s): FIBR 704.


FIBR 731 Special Topics in Fibers This studio course focuses on a particular area of the fibers field. Demonstrations, lectures, and critiques are designed to provide technical information and introduce new ideas to each student’s evolving body of work.


FIBR 732 Digital Fabric Printing Studio Through working with a digital fabric printer as the output for their designs, students learn the vernacular of this new technology. Students use various software applications to design and print fabric for a variety of end-uses. Technical considerations and design possi- bilities will be explored. Projects can be interpreted for inclusion in the Fine Art, Studio Production, or Design portfolios. Prerequisite(s): FIBR 724.


FIBR 733 Digital Jacquard Design Studio I Using specially designed software, students explore the technical, functional, and aesthetic considerations necessary to design successful jacquard woven fabrics. In addition to creating their own jacquard designs, stu- dents analyze existing jacquard samples and study a variety of woven structures used in jacquards. Students are encouraged to apply their individual artistic and design directions to their design of jacquard fabrics. Prerequisite(s): FIBR 724.


FIBR 734 Investigations in Woven Structures This course is intended for those whose main interest is in utilizing the woven structure as a tool for design and personal expression. By initially weaving experimental samples to learn the basics of the weaving process, students further explore appropriate structures and materials relevant to their own creative and conceptual direction. Readings and discussions on contemporary weavers and their work also are addressed. Emphasis is on enlarging a student’s visual, technical and material vocabulary that serve as a vehicle for the translation of ideas through the woven structure.


FIBR 736 The Book As Art: New Concepts In Bookmaking This course examines the increasingly important role of the book as a means of developing a fine art practice and personal vision. Through exploration of traditional and non-traditional structural processes and techniques, students develop book forms, structures and narratives that articulate personal concepts and ideologies.


FIBR 737 Color, Cloth, and Context This course allows the individual to explore conceptual and contextual ideas through the application of color, pattern and imagery to cloth. Technical guidance in the use of dyes and pigments supports individual inves- tigations. Exploration of ideas is augmented through research, discussions, critiques, and presentations.


FIBR 738 Contemporary Theory in Fibers In this course, current issues, theories and polemics pertinent to the fibers field, the nature of art, and mass culture create a context to explore each student’s investigation of studio work and ideology. Critical dialogue, workshops, presentations and lectures inform the development of a personal artistic vision. Prerequisite(s): FIBR 704.


FIBR 741 Graduate Advanced Travel Studio This course is for the graduate fibers student who wishes to participate in the Lacoste trip while devel- oping works that support graduate level inquiry and investigations. Through travel, research and investi- gation, students widen the breadth of their knowl- edge of working artists and designers within a new cultural context. Students create work for graduate critique based on the research and travel experience. Prerequisite(s): FIBR 772, permission of the depart- ment chair.


FIBR 743 Digital Jacquard Design Studio II This course is an advanced exploration of jacquard design focusing on complex weave structures. Stu- dents design and weave fabrics for textile design and/ or fine arts applications, according to individual areas of interest. Prerequisite(s): FIBR 733.
