Lab Fee: $100

In this two-week course, students will explore the making and meaning of pattern-based imagery and forms. Technical instruction will include drawing, block-printing, sewing machine piecing, and crochet. Students will practice and experiment with various generative exercises, and then synthesize ideas and techniques to create culminating installation projects sited around the Ox-Bow campus. Since “pattern” is discussed in so many different contexts (for example, art, craft, design, music, mathematics, physics, ecology, biology, sociology), slide lectures will approach the abstract concept of infinity from multiple perspectives, while discussions and class activities will foreground the potentials of the finite material world.
