Expand Your Learning Horizons - Visit Museums & Exhibits

museum-peopleIf you are studying design at a graphic design school or graphic design college, you realize your education is more than just going to classes and attending lectures.

You also learn through observation, sight, hearing, and tactile feedback.

A way of expanding your horizons is by visiting museums and fashion exhibits. You may find a treasure trove of ideas and inspiration for your career training in fashion or product design.

One exhibit that may be of interest is now showing at the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. The current show is called Fashioning Felt. The exhibition explores the various uses of felt with historical examples and continues on to the present.
felt

Felt is believed to be one of the earliest techniques for making textiles. The process involves matting wool fibers together by using humidity, heat, pressure, and friction. The resulting product is a non-woven piece of fabric.

Other displays at the Fashioning Felt exhibit include examples of felt being utilized in product design, fashion, architecture, and home furnishings.
