Seminar on weave structures

From: Susan Mathisen <sam6>
Date: Thursday, May 17, 2001
The Conservation Center of the Institute of Fine Arts, New York
University is pleased to announce a Summer Workshop:

A Practical Approach to Looking at Weave Structures
Milton Sonday, Textile Historian
August 6-9, 2001

This seminar is meant to provide a textile conservator with a
practical approach to describing, recording, and analyzing woven
fabrics. Microscopes and a projection system will be available to
study and discuss a variety of fabrics that represent major
categories of weaving techniques. The aim is to present approaches
to looking at and recording fabrics and provide a outline for
continued studies.

The format of the seminar will be flexible and not a strictly
ordered course. Students should come prepared to ask questions and
participate in discussions.

Some prior knowledge of woven structures or weaving techniques is
required and access to a collection to reinforce future study is
desirable.  Basic supplies will be provided.
