Textile Art: History, Diversity and Techniques
You are invited to join the devoted group of textile focused students from in and around the Kingston, ON community as we come together on September 21t to begin our exploration of the history of textile and fibre arts and create an all new body of work along the way.
There are no pre-requisites for the course and this term will earn students a full credit in this 36-hour Textile Arts Certificate Program ongoing at St. Lawrence College since 1996.
As we enter our tenth consecutive year of Program concentration at the Kingston Campus, our returning students will reunite with friends in the fibre arts, and new students who have an interest in pursuing a textiles and fibre focused learning experience. The course will be of interest to quilters, embroidery enthusiasts, fibre artists and general interest stitchers.
The study of Textile Art History will be the most impressive part of a personal journey to develop a body of work, collect an inventory of resources and supplies for design and development studies and as a foundation for future collection, exhibition and perhaps sale of textile art.
Designed to support both the traditional and contemporary fibre artist and quilter, this course will provide a guide for individual as well as interactive study and resource development to support current and future design work in a chosen area of interest. Explore American and European coverlets, quilts and needlework, and ethnographic textiles with strengths in South and Southeastern Asia, Latin America and particularly India. Learn how Impressionist Art and African and Japanese textiles continue to influence current fibre art and traditional quilt trends.
Course studies may lead to concentration on one particular technique as a focus for each individual student, or study and exploration in several areas of interest as students develop one or more small pieces of fibre or a small quilt which will be shared as a final Textile Art History course submission.
