Textiles: Mapping our identity at MannPosted: March 25, 2012
This spring, our students will be exploring the process of textiles in a variety of cultures. In exploring the process of textiles myself in the Surface Design class at the Corcoran, I have learned that color, texture, pattern, shape and image all surface from personal taste, tradition and process.
Students using textiles as a medium to discover the identity of ourselves and others will take place this spring in all grade levels, but will start in K-2. If you have Textiles to loan, share your story or participate in the process, please let me know! Students will experience adding dye, resist and printing techniques.
