Unformatted text preview: Introduction to Fibers for Non Majors For this assignment, you will choose any technique you learned in class (including knitting, even though we didn’t specifically learned it in class). You should expand your skills with this technique and see if you can take it further. I expect that you will challenge yourself with this project. Combining techniques is also encouraged (i.e., embroidery on a crocheted ground). This is your final project; there is more time available for you to complete this project, and I expect that your project will reflect this when completed (ie, you should expect to have devoted at least 15‐20 hours completing this project!). Refer to your handout on The Principles of Design to incorporate good design in your project. You are responsible for any supplies required for your project, with the following exceptions: dye, as long as our supply lasts (you may also use the powdered studio dye as long as you follow the studio rules for using it, including using the dye hood and wearing rubber gloves while working with the dye), discharge paste, fabric paints as long as the class supply lasts. Remember there is also a supply of free fabrics and other miscellaneous supplies in the studio for your use. Again, remember that the success of your artwork will rest on the following factors, so consider 1) your available time, 2) cost of materials 3) material availability (how long will it take to get your materials), 4) the learning curves necessary to learn your materials. Your writing assignment is to discuss in your sketchbook what you learned on this project and what, if anything, you will do next on your own using any of the techniques you learned in class. If you never plan to do anything again using any of the techniques you learned, why? (no judgment here—some people may just not like it—so be honest) (1 page). There are 4 class periods available to work on your project in class, and you should take advantage of the technical help as well as the studio tools available on those days. You are expected to attend class and work on your project during those workdays unless there is a specific reason that you need to work somewhere else. I expect that you will work in class; this allows me to check up on your work and for you to get feedback from your fellow students. You are also able to work in the studio (with the permission of any instructors teaching during the time you wish to work) any time the studio is open. The hours the studio is open is posted on the wall outside the studio. Project is due at the beginning of the class on Thursday December 3. Your sketchbook is due at the same time. We will critique about half of the projects on Thursday and the other half the following Tuesday. There will be a signup sheet in class on Tuesday, November 24 to sign up for the day your project will be critiqued, and you must be in class to sign up. All sketchbooks will be collected on Thursday and returned on the following Tuesday. We will also be doing a studio cleanup on Tuesday at the end of class; each person will select a job from a bowl to complete. Attendance at both critiques is mandatory; you must have a doctor’s excuse if you do not attend either critique or you will get an F on your project (even if you were present when your project was critiqued). There will be no class meetings during finals week. Final Project Assignment ...
