SCAD Fiber Department Tour continues

The Sewing Machine Studio
Students learn to work with electronic, digitised machines...

...and old-school machines for sewing, knitting, embroidery and serging.

The Weaving Studio
I have very limited knowledge on looms but could see the room was filled with many different types - small and large. The largest one in the back is the only such machine in North America - having come from Scandinavia. 

The Surface Design Studio
I have never seen a cleaner surface design room. It was simple and perfectly set up. The above image shows only one side of one of the rooms.


The screen cleaning set up is quite unique. They have worked within the limits of an old building basement to come up with a simple solution.
The SCAD tour was an exciting start to the Textile Society of America's Symposium 2016.
