Contemporary textile design inspired by historical Jacquard techniques
Representative samples of historical Jacquard techniques such as lampas, tacqueté, samitum are observed and analyzed. The number and function of warp and wefts series are identified, weave superimposition theory introduced and the drafting of complex weave structures practiced.

Observation and analysis of representative samples of historical Jacquard techniques such as lampas, tacqueté, samitum. Identification of the number and function of warp and wefts.
Introduction to weave super-imposition theory. Practical exercises in drafting complex weave structures.
In the computer lab, each student uses textile design software to design and produce a ‘virtual sample book’ and a digital weave library, based on the techniques studied, for use with CAD software.
