Fiber, Felt and Inspiration at the Museum of Craft and Design, San Francisco

Recently I seen a few hours viewing an exhibit at the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco. I specifically went there to view an exhibit called Felt Decoded, featuring artist Janice Arnold.

As an instructor of Textiles at San Diego Mesa College's Fashion Program, I'm always interested to learn more about fiber and anything related to that. I had heard of this exhibit through an Italian filter friend, Lisbeth Wahl. Small world, that an Italian had to clue me in to an exhibit in my own state, from many miles away.


Here are a few images that were 'wow' moments.




In one area of the exhibit, there is this amazing microscope that you could place over a sample fiber in a container. I have no idea what the level of magnification was, but it as a LOT. Below check out a few fibers (on the left) and their close-up versions (on the right).

There are definitely a lot of particulars like that to take into consideration. That is a nice level to deliver up. I provide the thoughts above as common inspiration however clearly there are questions like the one you carry up where an important factor shall be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I'm positive that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.
