Finding Creative Scholarship in the Constraints of Materials and the Affordances of Collaboration
Making is knowing. As a lecturer in Family and Consumer Sciences, I have the opportunity to emulate the teachers I have admired most throughout my education — those who are both knowledgeable instructors and skilled practitioners. In my design practice, I am inspired by unique textiles made from natural fibers. I like to work within the confines of each fabric’s original dimensions and surface design, creating an original and aesthetically pleasing garment and yielding ‘zero-waste.’ These design principles extend as a metaphor for my teaching philosophy.
