Here are a few shots from the Capilano University Textile Arts Student Sale on Tuesday. Work included that of alumni, second year diploma, and advanced certificate textile arts students. It was a great success and everyone enjoyed themselves tremendously!
The objective for these projects was to create either a 3 metre piece of yardage using one of the repeat mechanisms OR to develop a product line for the upcoming student sale!
STUDENT SALE: Tuesday November 22nd between 11:30 and 6pm*, Arbutus Building Room AR201, Capilano University ~ North Vancouver Campus ~ 2055 Purcell Way
*There is also an information session for the Textile Arts Program between 1:30 and 2:30 in the same location. This is a great opportunity to meety faculty and to see student work (and students at work)!
In Scandinavia, the stars of Orion’s belt are known as Friggjar rockr, Frigg’s distaff or spindle. The spindle predates the spinning wheel, and the distaff is used for spinning linen, the yarn Scandinavia is so famous for. Both spindle and distaff have the long straight shape that fits these stars.
The first year students are exposed to the wonders (and aromas) of indigo dye vats!
