Mål og innhald
This is one of four medium and method based modules that students must choose from.
This module introduces fundamental principles, basic technical understanding and subject contextualisation, in respect of constructed (woven) textiles, towards facilitating autonomous and creative practice in the workshops.
Learning and teaching is practice-based and holistic, combining a variety of direct and sustained hands-on engagement supported by contextual reference.
Programme objectives include introduction to several basic and more advanced methods of weaving, including the use of both analogue and digital interfaces. Activity will include the preparation and handling of warps for weaving, and their setting-up in different loom types. A mixture of individual and small group working will facilitate shared learning and embedding of practical knowledge and understanding.
While there will not be the opportunity to execute full finished works during the learning period, the programme will ensure principal grounding in and connection with the subject and its possibilities.
Safe and efficient use of all tools and materials will be embedded throughout the programme.
