This fall, we are excited to continue offering Textile Design & History, an online course that will allow you to explore textile design and history, from home. For six weeks, join experienced textile designer and educator Karthika Audinet for an introduction to inspiring textiles from around the world, and a chance to develop your own skills and knowledge.
Online lectures will be punctuated with hands-on exercises, individual research, and group discussions. Explore woven structures and surface design techniques used around the world, including embroidery, resist dyeing, printing, and painting. Analyze color, develop mood boards, and design your own textile patterns, taking inspiration from the Cotsen Textile Traces Study Collection, along with other world-class textile collections. This course is open to all levels, including beginners.
