Ceramics/Pottery:

Fiber/Wearables:
Fiber art refers to a form of artistic expression that utilizes various types of textile materials, such as fabric, yarn, thread, and other natural or synthetic fibers, to create visual or tactile artworks. It's a versatile and diverse medium that encompasses a wide range of techniques and styles. Fiber art can be both two-dimensional and three-dimensional, and it often blurs the boundaries between traditional craft, fine art, and contemporary design. Some common techniques and forms within fiber art include:

  1. Weaving: The process of interlocking threads or fibers to create a textile fabric. Weaving can result in intricate patterns and textures.
  2. Textile Collage: Assembling different pieces of fabric or fibers to create a composition, much like a traditional paper collage but using textiles.
  3. Embroidery: Decorating fabric using needle and thread, often incorporating intricate patterns, designs, and textures.
  4. Knitting and Crocheting: Creating fabric by looping and interlocking yarn with needles (knitting) or hooks (crocheting).
  5. Macramé: A form of textile art that involves knotting fibers to create decorative and functional items like wall hangings, plant hangers, and more.
  6. Quilting: Stitching together multiple layers of fabric to create a thicker, padded material. Quilts often feature intricate patterns and designs.
  7. Felting: Manipulating wool or other fibers using moisture, heat, and pressure to create solid shapes or textures.
  8. Sculptural Fiber Art: Creating three-dimensional sculptures using various fiber materials, sometimes combined with other materials like wire or found objects.
  9. Dyeing and Surface Design: Applying dyes, pigments, and other colorants to fibers to create patterns and designs.
    • Batik is the art of wax-resistant dye on fabrics to create beautiful and colorful designs.
  10. Wearable Fiber Art: Designing and creating clothing, accessories, and wearable items using fiber techniques for artistic expression.

Wearable fiber art refers to artistic creations that are made from textile materials and are intended to be worn as clothing or accessories. Wearable fiber art pieces are often unique or limited in number, emphasizing their artistic and individualistic nature rather than mass production. This form of art allows artists to explore not only aesthetics but also concepts related to identity, culture, society, and personal expression.
