What to expect.......

This class will give you a more in depth view on how textiles are created and utilized.  We will explore the difference between knits and wovens as well as their strengths and weaknesses through lecture and lab practices.  During the lab section we will perform several tests on different types of textiles, examine the textile structures through pick glasses and create a wool felted sample.  If you would like to increase your knowledge of textiles to enhance your sewing and designing experience, this is the class for you.  No previous textile knowledge or sewing skills required.  Lab supplies are not required in class until our fourth class date.
