The nature of fabric allows its freedom to float, contour or delineate form. This course examines the contemporary resurgence of traditional craft to explore 3-D forms and sculptural interventions. Recently re-envisioned histories of hand work and conceptual craft are introduced as we observe form and material inspired by the political, satirical and social influences embraced by current practitioners. Driven by individual interests and skill levels, possibilities include inflatables, stuffed soft-sculptures and installations, and armatures with stretched, skin-like surfaces.Sarah Gjertson received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and is the current director of the School of Art and Art History at the University of Denver.
