Fibers & WEAVING

The imagination can be freed working with textiles, where fiber art techniques such as shibori, batik, silk-painting, or block-printing can be adapted from global traditions, cultural symbolism, or the human imperative for mark-making.

And our 50 floor looms, located on the two floors of the Priest's House on the Ursuline Campus, are considered to be the largest teaching collection in the U.S., and are enjoyed by an active community of adult student weavers..

Students enrolled in: 2002 | On Loom Weaving Studio Projects have access to the studios for working independently outside of class time during the following days and times: Mon & Thurs | 4:00 – 6:00pm; Tues & Wed |  12:00pm – 2:30pm; Fri | 9:00am – 1:00pm; and Sat | 10:00am – 2:00pm.
