Connections through Hannah Mendoza’s 2nd year studio

March 29, 2012 § Leave a comment

Hannah Mendoza’s 2nd Year studio was asked to come up with their own studio project. Every student is doing something different, but they all have something in common as well. A few students have grouped up to dye different types of textiles (mainly wool) and then creating some sort of pattern. The two students featured in this post (Jack Kennedy [left] and Kristy Stroud [right]) are dying wool and creating patterns by hand, and by felting. The final objective is to group up as a studio to create a web of individual projects.

A couple of weeks ago, Hannah Mendoza’s IAR 332 (Materials + Methods) class was offered a chance to receive extra credit by attending a sheep shearing event. Most students went and observed how wool is taken from the sheep and bagged to be sold for textiles.
