BFA Major in Fibres and Material Practices
Fibres and Material Practices is a cross‑media program of study that explores the relationship of materials to culture. Informed by discourses of post‑modernism, feminism, and traditional aesthetics, the Fibres and Material Practices program offers an opportunity for intensive study, both practical and theoretical, of the art, technology, and history of textiles. Such creative and critical investigation, allied with technical proficiency, provides the base students need to develop as emerging artists.
