Fiber: Sewing + Fabrication Processes
Course No. FIB268 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Christina Cassara
The course will center on the problem of using a two dimensional flexible plane to build a three-dimensional form. The class will emphasize skills in machine sewing, using both domestic and specialized industrial machines and proceed to other fabrication methods. The course will include the basic pattern making skills required to construct the skin of a three-dimensional object. These processes are relevant to garment making, however this class is structured to apply these skills to a wider range of fabricated objects. The materials used are central to the meaning of the work and the class will include an investigation of the formal and physical potentials of materials and will consider the metaphoric, symbolic and cultural information carried by those materials. Offered fall.
