Contemporary textile design inspired by historical Jacquard techniques - Teacher: Eva Basile
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 a ‘virtual sample book’ and and produce  - hand-weaving on a digital Jacquard loom - a digital weave library, based on the techniques studied, for use with CAD software.
