Paige Beltowski, a junior in the Fiber department, has been accepted to Central Saint Martins in London, for the Spring semester. CSM is a leading fashion design school and Paige will be there from January until June. She started an Indiegogo fundraiser to help with her travel and living expenses while she’s there. Check out her site and help her out if you can- she is very talented!

It’s that time of the semester again! The Fiber department will be hosting Informal Interdepartmental Critiques tomorrow! We still have quite a few spaces open for informal critiques tomorrow. I would like to see some of you there! Again you do not have to bring finished pieces. Please let me know as soon as you can if you are interested in being critiqued!
These informal critiques were put in place to give students the opportunity to have a constructive dialogue with students from other departments around campus and this also gives students the chance to present their work in a less formal environment without faculty interaction. We intend to keep the conversation constructive and considered, so we ask students who are interested to come with questions prepared and ready to engage in the conversation!
Both critiques will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-9:00 pm.
Critiques will be in the Warehouse Gallery Space, in the new Fiber building.
The first 20 minutes will be an open discussion: What would you like to see more in critiques? What is currently lacking? How would you like to see the informal critique project continued? What do you want to avoid in your critiques?
Critique slots, 20 minutes each, will be on a first come first served basis. Please email Maegan directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in being critiqued.
We expect all critiqued students to be prepared and set up before their assigned critique time.
All work is welcome! Finished, in progress, etc. This is a time for you to get the feedback you need!
If you do not want to be critiqued you can still join in the conversation!! All students are welcome to participate!
If you are interested in this program please email Maegan as soon as possible at email@example.com. We want to continue interdepartmental dialogue, and we know you do to! Please help us continue this much needed interdepartmental conversation!
