Online Continuing Education Course
This summer, we are excited to present a new online course with the Corcoran School of Art & Design that will allow you to explore textile design and history from home. For six weeks, join experienced textile designer and educator Karthika Audinet for an introduction to inspiring textiles from around the world, and a chance to develop your own skills and knowledge.
Each week, online lectures will be punctuated with hands-on exercises, individual research, and group discussions. Explore woven structures and surface design techniques used around the world, including embroidery, ikat, resist dyeing, printing, and painting. Analyze color, develop mood boards, and design your own textile patterns, taking inspiration from the Cotsen Textile Traces Study Collection, along with other world-class textile collections. This class is open to all levels, including beginners.
The Corcoran’s Continuing Education program offers a variety of non-credit art and design courses throughout the year. To register for Textile Design & History, visit the Continuing Education website before June 29. Please keep in mind that participants must first register as a non-degree student before signing up for the course.
Course fee: $400, plus materials. A supply list will be provided to registered students by June 29.
