Material Flex: Working with Textiles & Photography

We interact with textiles every day—we wear them close to our skin, decorate our homes with them, use them to carry objects, and even sleep within them. Textiles tell stories, and they hold memories. As objects and as a material, fabrics are personal and intimate.

Join HCP instructor Kelly Webeck and discover the process of transforming your photographs into fabric printed objects! The course is carefully designed for students who want to create new work or expand a current project while integrating fiber art with their photography. Students will discover artists whose work utilizes and experiment with fabrics, thread, and weavings and learn how to use different processes for their projects. With an extra week between each session, artists have time to create their own pace and develop their projects between each meeting. Students will receive constructive and specific feedback from structured in-class critiques and class discussions. Over three sessions, students will grow their visual language and understanding of photographic theory and expand their knowledge of art history. 

This class is a great next step for students who’ve taken the lecture-based course, Stitched: A Contemporary Look at Photography and Textiles. However, no previous experience is required for this class.
