Surface Design for Textiles is an introduction to the properties of dyes, paints and discharge chemicals on fabric. The course will cover the processes of immersion and dye painting and the techniques of Shibori, silkscreening, block printing, stenciling, monoprinting, and computer inkjet printing. Various resists will be explored, including potato and corn dextrin, rock salt, and gutta, on a variety of materials including silk, cotton, linen, and rayon. The completion of small samples using the techniques introduced will demonstrate understanding of the various processes. Two final projects will reflect the creative application of the learned processes. It is recommended that students who are pregnant, nursing, or planning a pregnancy this semester do not take this class. In some terms this course may be cross-tallied at the undergraduate level as CPR 1270 and at the graduate level as CPR 5270. Additional work is required to earn graduate credit.
