Overview: We will examine the various elements that contribute to the look of a piece of fabric and therefore its design.

Program: through the analysis of samples students will learn to recognize the elements that determine their look and texture: materials, colors, warp and weft setts, features of the different weaves, combination and contrast of materials, weaves and colors, color sequences in warp and weft, etc. Each student will be given a small collection of samples and related technical data for them to keep.
