Our Textile Design (Level 2) course is full, but there is still space in the Level 1 class.

About Level 2

Join experienced textile designer and educator Karthika Audinet for a six-week course on textile design. Through lectures and hands-on workshops, students learn about the history of textile design and techniques used around the world, including embroidery, resist dyeing, printing and painting. Students review examples from world-class textile collections, including the Cotsen Textile Traces Study Collection, to develop a vocabulary for interpreting, contextualizing and taking inspiration from the world’s textiles. Students also have a chance to develop their own skills using fabrics, pencil and paper, hot wax resist and organic indigo dye.
