(Overview & big concepts)
Not all fabric design is woven- we often wear and see clothes that are printed with repeatable designs, tessellations, words, or pictures of famous people. Join us as we meet with Textiles consultant, Jennifer Swope in the Textiles conservation department. We will be looking at cottons printed from all over the world!

Pre-tour group activity:
Take a look at some of your own clothes and fabrics around the home. Can you tell which process was used to create the patterning? Are the patterns woven? Printed? Decals? Feel free to post your favorites in the virtual classroom!
