Studio experience in the surface design of textiles combined with exercises in color theory. Textile projects use techniques such as natural dyes, block printing, silk painting, shibori, silk screen, and embroidery to produce a portfolio of textile designs. Studio work is augmented by lectures on pattern and color theory illustrated by slides and textile examples.

Outcome 1: Develop a better understanding of the principles of color in design.

Outcome 2: Apply these principles to the surface design of textiles.

Outcome 3: Learn techniques of textile surface design: natural dyes; silk screen (direct, resist and discharge printing); tied, stitched, and clamped resist dyeing (shibori); embroidery; and block printing.

Outcome 4: Produce a surface designed length of yardage sufficient for a garment (3 yards).

Outcome 5: Develop a portfolio of surface design work.
