Students will gain a fundamental understanding of traditional sewing and construction techniques using both hand and machine methods. Students may incur additional costs for project supplies. Please note that seats in this course are reserved for College of Design or Art + Design Minor (v) students only due to to limited size of labs and class demand. Students who elect to take this course a second time are expected to build upon their experience and/or to approach these concepts from a different perspective.

Justification for Course:

This course has been offered as ADN273 during Fall 2012 with an enrollment of 14

(including the 502 graduate section). It is an important course in our Fibers program as we

continue to develop our fashion focus within the undergraduate and graduate programs in

Art+Design. It provides a valuable hands-on technical course for Design Studies and other

Design major students to gain experience with making items out of fabric. The course

teaches the student how to properly construct their projects so they can have better quality

crafted pieces as they move through the more advanced courses and studios.
