Transform paper and combine it with textile and stitch to create small postcard size samples. Students will explore ideas related to design and the creation of textile papers (momigami) and look at different ways of texturing and transforming found surfaces. The focus will be on hand stitching as an extension of mark making and drawing, and various means of layering.
