This course is the second in a three-course sequence. Ateliers are one of the most distinctive features of the MFA in Textiles. The atelier experience strengthens skills in both making and research and provides a real-world setting in which students can revisit, test, and prototype ideas from Major Studio. This course also provides students with opportunities to use diverse (and sometimes rare or cutting-edge) equipment and materials that would otherwise not be available to them. The ateliers expose students to an array of approaches to making cloth and offer them an immediate and immersive experience with professional practice in design and craft studios and workshops in the New York metropolitan area. Students consult with the MFA Textiles faculty to select an appropriate atelier site. Once paired with their ateliers, students meet with and work alongside the professional studio designers and associated staff to learn how to translate a concept into a finished product. Collaborations might involve decisions on fibers, yarn architecture, dyeing processes, weaving techniques, knitting advances, pattern making, and finishes. Each student's project is mapped with a timeline and associated steps and is overseen by an MFA Textiles faculty member. Students conference weekly with their atelier partners and receive guidance on techniques and the pacing needed to complete projects.
