Asian Textile Workshop

Jamie Root

Appreciating Asian cultures and their long history of weaving, dyeing, and fabric design, fiber artist Jamie Root introduces students to the non-woven textile, felt, and discusses the wide range of uses of this technique in Asian culture. Students will experience the wet felt-making of Tibetan culture by creating a coaster-sized piece of felt.
