Explore Fiber is a collaborative website showcasing and exploring fiber as a fine art material.
Explore Fiber is excited to share the first Lab with you! The purpose for the Explore Fiber Labs is to demonstrate various processes, techniques, and materials used in fiber arts. When you purchase the Explore Fiber Lab – Paper Cloth, you will have access to a video tutorial demonstrating the process. In addition, you will have access to a downloadable 14 page PDF file, written in a lesson plan format, that will list art education objectives & standards, specific material lists, vocabulary, and a step by step tutorial to make a Japanese Stab Bound book.
The purchase of the Lab will give you instant access to:
“These are examples of my 9th & 10th grade students’ Japanese Stab Bound books that they made with the same instructions you will be receiving in the Lab PDF file. They loved making these books and used the paper cloth they created to cover the book boards of their handmade books! There were so many individual interpretations of the process, a sure sign that student voice and choice shines through their artwork.” – Christine Miller
