About

  • UWM Fibers Angelique Koepke

Create

Fibers is a broad based medium that uses methods of making that include surface design (various direct & resist dye techniques, hand & screen-print, etc.), weaving, cloth construction, quilting, stitching, wearable art, basketry, sculpture, felting, beading and installation, utilizing both natural and man-made fibers.

Collaborate

Cross-disciplinary work within other studio areas and media is encouraged, while students develop individual creative direction focused on the qualities inherent in the history and materiality of fibers. Our program prepares students to be creative makers and critical thinkers. Similar to the breadth of the medium, itself, the potential career path is also broad.
