Courses and Learning Opportunities

Please plan to join the community of TEXTILE ARTS Students at Kingston's St. Lawrence College this upcoming WINTER TERM...

is the 2018 winter term credit course and sure to provide lots of interest and fun!

Thursday evenings January 18-March 25th
(the last classes will be combined into a two day stitch focused weekend
March 24th and 25th. No class on February 15th.)
6:00 - 9 pm - Classroom to be assigned

You are invited to join the devoted group of textile focused students from in and around the Kingston, ON community as we come together on  January 18, 2018 to begin our exploration of the history of textile and fibre arts and create an all new body of work along the way.

There are no pre-requisites for the course and this term will earn students a full credit in this 36-hour Textile Arts Certificate Program ongoing at St. Lawrence College since 1996.

As we enter our thirteenth consecutive year of Fibre Arts Program concentration at the Kingston Campus, our returning students will reunite with friends in the fibre arts, and new students who have an interest in pursuing a textiles and fibre focused learning experience. The course will be of interest to quilters, embroidery enthusiasts, fibre artists and general interest stitchers.

Course Description:

Creating stand alone pieces and/or artwork that include embellishment that adds dimensional appeal is an exciting part of any artists' fabric journey.

Using skills learned as a quilter or experimenting as a fibre arts student, and creating mixed media, using paint, sculpted and hand made with fibres/felt - developing structures that could include wood, wire and stuffed work are all a part of the focus for the course.

Students may choose to work on their own projects including items such as dolls, handbags, wall art, garments, jewellery, woven or stitched home d├ęcor items that move away from the two dimensional, flat to the wall norm.

Let your imagination and creative ideas run wild as you share time with friends in the classroom. Plenty of inspiring resources in the form of online links, Instructor supplies library books and on-line studies of your choice are available to all students. Come make time to explore all new ideas and relate them into real-time work that is exhibition ready.

Designed to support both the traditional and contemporary fibre artist and quilter, this course will provide a guide for individual as well as interactive study and resource development to support current and future design work in a chosen area of interest. 

Course studies may lead to concentration on one particular technique as a focus for each individual student, or study and exploration in several areas of interest as students develop one or more small pieces of fibre or a small quilt which will be shared as a final Textile Art History course submission.

Hope to see you in the classroom.
