Upholstery and Soft Goods
Spring 2023
Taught By: Sarah Templin
Section: A

CRN: 13833

Credits: 3

This course will introduce the materials, tools and techniques of upholstery and soft-good design and construction within the context of furniture and other useful products. Students will first be introduced to materials and techniques in both historical and emerging contexts, becoming conversant in process terms and concepts. Students will then engage in process-based exercises to grasp technique, before moving on to completion of a project-based deliverable (product) that integrates two or more of the techniques practiced above. Students will work both traditionally and experimentally, within the context the Parsons Making Center, allowing students to optimize the resources at their disposal. Topics covered will include pattern-making, frame construction, foam shaping, springing, sewing, knitting (both analog and digital) weaving (both analog and digital), etc. Relevance will be demonstrated to those from multiple disciplines, including the constructed environment, fashion / wearables, technology, etc.
