2D Studio students have been hard at work learning about textile art and creating with fibers! These modern weavings are absolutely breathtaking. Maybe, I am a little bias, but they are so stunning I want to steal them ALL and hang them around my home (not to worry, I would never actually do that, but it’s fun to dream). Students used a variety of weaving techniques (Raya Knots, Tabby Weaving, and Soumak Weaving) to create patterns and used a variety of shapes and lines (cough, cough… The Elements of Art). Some students wanted their masterpieces to be functional (sewn on a tote) while others opted to hang theirs on a wall!
