Sustainable Textiles

<p>Sustainability is about using techniques that allow for continual reuse of resources. Why might textile designers want to reuse scraps or reclaim waste fibers? What other things that get thrown away could be reused as part of a woven textile? </p> <p>ART MAKING CHALLENGE: Incorporate something recyclable in a hand-woven textile.  Consider color, texture, and how well it will perform for a particular purpose.  Would you combine the recycled items with traditional yarns or just use recycled items? Which method is likely to get the results you want?</p>

What effects do you think this had on Europeans? </p> <p>Examine drawings of each food. How did the artist use line to show texture and/or value? </p><p>Examine the stamps: How did the artist use colors and shapes to create a design that is clear on a tiny stamp?</p> <p><br /></p> <p></p>
