Screen Shot 2016-08-18 at 3.54.24 PM.pngIt is our goal for each student to learn the various aspects of fabric design including the design process, woven structure, surface printing, material exploration and various non-woven techniques.

The program emphasizes studies in drawing, painting and color as a way of building the foundation for individual artistic expression. Whether choosing to design for industry or to create fine artwork, research into new ideas, materials, methods and design, applications are continually expected.

Student Profile

Students must be sensitive to and enjoy working with a variety of materials; must be able to master hand-manipulated techniques and enjoy using tools that are essential in the various fabric processes; must have a sensitivity of and appreciation for color, pattern and texture; must be willing to spend many long hours in studio work and be prepared to meet deadlines. The ability to draw is essential in order to bring ideas to reality in most of the work in fabric design. It is especially important in designing for flat pattern in fabric surface design. The ability to visualize objects in two-and three-dimensional form and "construct" these ideas is required.

Employment

One area of employment open to majors in fabric design is designing for industry. This could involve designing woven, printed, knitted fabrics, as well as carpet and rug design. Many of our graduates hold responsible positions with a variety of textile firms. With a degree in Art Education or an MFA degree, there are possibilities for teaching fabric design. Some opportunities exist in community, adult education and summer camp programs. There is also the opportunity for outstanding craftsmen to establish their own studios, receive commissions from interior designers or to sell work through galleries, craft shops, etc.
