research on textile techniques
| PAOLA BESANA
weaver, designer and textile artist
researcher into weaving structures and ethnic looms
Creativity in design, manufacture and teaching is enhanced by a deep knowledge of textile structures, fibers, techniques, modern and folk textile traditions, and the latest trends in design.
To paraphrase Italo Calvino, creativity is like jam: you have to spread it on a solid slice of bread [i.e. technical knowledge]. If not, it remains a shapeless thing, like jam, out of which you can’t make anything.
