    • 1 DIS Architecture and Design Spring 2014 Textile Design in Scandinavia Workshop 3 Credits www.DISabroad.org Lecturers: Gunhild Bønløkke Pedersen (GBP), gunhild.pedersen@dis.dk Malene Kristiansen (MK), malene.kristiansen@dis.dk Course Assistant: Greta Rasmus (GR), gra@dis.dk Meeting Time: M/Th 16:25-19:30 Meeting Location: F24-302 Course Length: January 23-March 13 Course Description The course combines design and methods of printing for interior textiles with readings and discussion on the subject of textile design. The course will include a workshop component where printing methods will be taught and the student’s own designs can be realized as well as site visits to designers, producers and realized projects in the Scandinavian context. The course will run for half of the semester in an intense format. The course includes field studies to a textile Designer/Design company and guest speakers from design industries or academia. Textile Design in Scandinavia workshop is designed for students in studio art, interior design, architecture, design history, graphic design, creative management or business. Studio groups combine students of different standing and background. The course is taught vertically, and expectations relate to each individual student. Students will work in analog and digital media. User knowledge of Photoshop is required. Enrollment is limited according to workshop availability. The key focus of the course is on patterns. The word pattern is used to refer to a motif, behavior or occurrence repeated over time or in space. Repetition of a motif on a surface appeals to the sense of order and can create an enjoyable sense of rhythm due to eye movement from place to place within the pattern. Recognizing the repetition also plays a great role in the pleasure of looking at repeat patterns. Repeat patterns form a special subgenre in the decorative arts and are especially associated with continuous lengths of textiles and paper. Repeat patterns can also be applied to facades, floors, clothing and other surfaces, with adaptations to the particular shape or limitations of the surface. Learning Objectives The objectives of the workshop are to train students in the textile design process in a Danish context and to inspire design solutions based on knowledge of Danish and Scandinavian methods of textile design.
    • 2 DIS Architecture and Design Spring 2014 Textile Design in Scandinavia Workshop 3 Credits www.DISabroad.org Required Texts Reading material can be found on DIS Forum. Approach to Teaching The workshop is taught vertically; which means students of different standings and majors work together in one class. Emphasis will be placed on the individual student´s research and design process, and on the issue of designing and manufacturing within a Danish context. Assignments There will be 2 to 4 hours of homework every week plus short readings and assignments. Assignment 1 The Copenhagen pattern sketchbook. The sketchbook is required from the first day of class. Note the following: Begin collecting interesting components for the sketchbook from the first day, including: sketches, photos, postcards, patterns, tickets, text notes, thoughts, maps, wrapping paper, thread, found objects, etc. Do not censor yourself - anything that catches the eye is valid! Do not discard anything! Sketchbook has to contain between 20 and 40 patterns. Assignment 2 Analyze a Scandinavian textile or wallpaper design in relation to: Design: Style, function, materials and technique: print v. weave, rapport pattern, rapport size, and rapport type, amount of colors, ect Business perspective: Marketing, collection, branding, competitors and market analysis. Put it in a context of your own wallpaper and textile design. The paper must be 1.500 words, plus illustrations. There must be clear bibliographic references and a works cited page. Final Presentation Presentation of digital print on paper for wallpaper. Presentation of digital print on fabric for applied textiles, cushions, blanket, tablecloth, etc. Description of the interaction between vertical print on paper and horizontal print on fabric. Prints must be presented in a virtual room. Final Presentation must communicate the student’s knowledge of repeat patterns, perception of patterns, sketches and color samples on paper.
    • 3 DIS Architecture and Design Spring 2014 Textile Design in Scandinavia Workshop 3 Credits www.DISabroad.org Presentation should also represent the student’s work as an overall solution, display their artistic skills on a professional level, and show the working process and method from sketches to final product. Arguments for decisions concerning patterns, colors and materials made during the design process must be presented. Students will also have enhanced their design methods and abilities. Field Studies Visits to local designers, manufacturers and museums as a group and on an individual basis are integrated into the curriculum. Expectations of the Students Students are expected to be fully engaged in lectures and studio, participate actively in any discussions, workshops and studio activities.

Final Presentation Breakdown Evaluation of daily studio work counts 40% of the total final assignment grade and is based on process, progress, and activity. Late submission of the final presentation will result in downgrading of process grade. Assignment presentations count 60% of the total final assignment grade. Evaluation is based upon completion of assignment goals agreed upon by the student and the instructor, including the following criteria: concept, execution of concept, drawings, process, participation, and presentation. The assignments are presented to a panel of instructors including the student’s own instructor. Grades are determined by one’s own instructor in agreement with other jurors. THE FINAL PRESENTATION MUST CONSIST OF AT LEAST: • Sketchbook / Visual Journal • Final wallpaper • Final fabric print • Documentation of research, analysis and investigations of your fabric and wallpaper design. • Experiments with colors, sizes and placement of objects. Your wallpaper plot and textile print should be mounted to a 120 x 120 cm board, provided. Make sure to argue for the decisions you have made and show this in your process.
