The studio might be available for Erasmus students, who are able to prove their previous experience in the field of textile and fiber art. We perceive the textile art as the integration of various artistic disciplines, as a medium of conveying ideas. Textile Studio merges tradition with searching and experiment. It is a place where students from all faculties bring different interests and experiences, what stimulates all of us. We encourage students to look for innovatory solutions and transform already known techniques and materials in a new surprising way. We invite to challenge the schematic way of thinking about the fiber art. However, mastering various methods of handling the textile art isn’t an obligatory ritual, but an element which broadens the knowledge and allows to develop one’s possibilities. The skills include basic weaving techniques, batik, handmade paper, felting methods, dyeing. The range of knowledge acquired by a student depends on the time spent in the studio (the number of semesters).
