Teaching Period (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 


Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Students broaden their understanding  in design and manufacturing processes of industrially woven fabrics. They deepen their understanding  in pattern design for woven fabrics and learn new skills  in designing advanced jacquard structures. Students select the area to specialize according to their own interests. Students deepen their artistic expression in woven fabrics.

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Students design a collection of woven fabrics, including both jacquards, and fabrics produced in dobby looms. Students decide the focus of their collection according to their own  projects and interests. Students use Photoshop and WeavePoint to design the woven structures. In addition to samples, students have the possibility to produce bigger pieces of fabric, if needed for their project. These fabrics can be woven by hand, or if possible, industrially. Students taking both PatternLab project and Advanced Woven Fabrics and Jacquard Workshop, make their woven collection for PatternLab project. All students working on a project or thesis including design of woven fabrics during periods III-V, must participate on the course. If student already has studied the advanced jacquard structures taught in the course, or if the project is not related in jacquard technique, they do not need to participate on lectures.

Assessment Methods and Criteria (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Lectures, course meetings, personal tutoring and self-reliant work in the studio.

Elaboration of the evaluation criteria and methods, and acquainting students with the evaluation (applies in this implementation): 

Design work - creativity of the design, artistic expression, usability, use of material and woven structures (30%)

Understanding of woven structures, info cards (30%)

Active participation in lectures and course meetings, approach to learning process and teamwork in the weaving workshop (30%)

Progress during the course taking the individual starting point
into account (10%)

Workload (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Depends from the workload  

2cr = 54 h

10 cr=270 h

Lectures/contact sessions max 100 h=10cr

Independent work

Details on calculating the workload (applies in this implementation): 

Lectures and tasks related to them = 2 cr

1 finished fabric, jacquard or shaft loom + infocard = 1 cr

Final presentation = 1 cr

Study Material (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020):
