Undergraduate Faculty of Art and Design

Leader: Kate Derum


Not offered in 2007


This unit gives students the opportunity to further develop the ideas concepts, materials and processes begun in the corresponding Tapestry 1A unit. Students will begin to establish an individual and self directed practice within the broad parameters of the tapestry discipline. Methods and materials specific to the tapestry studio discipline will be demonstrated and practiced. Students will be encouraged to develop appropriate links between these methods and other means of creative self-expression. Set projects will require students to develop technical skills hand in hand with their understanding of concepts of current relevance.


On successful completion of this unit, students will: 1 have further explored processes related to and derived from tapestry weaving; 2 have increased technical and aesthetic fluency; 3 have further considered their work within a historical and contemporary context; 4 have produced a comprehensive artists journal; 5 understand and apply the principles of occupational health and safety practices in the studio


Folio of studio work: 100%, of which at least 20% will be assessed before mid-semester.
