Announcing the Bonus Track for #CostumeCollege2018: “WTF?: What's That Fabric?”
by Assistant Dean Maegen Hensley

"WTF? You say? That's right! Our bonus track this year is WTF: What's That Fabric?!? I am emphasizing the question and explanation marks because it is often times I am watching a movie, show, or play and ask that exact question. It is often I am working on a project's fabric and straining my eyes to see anything that will give away it's secret... is it a wool twill or a poly-cotton twill? What the heck? Silk or polyester? You would not believe how similar these unidentifiable fabrics look alike in pictures or portraits or on screen.

So, I am taking it to the College. Let's help each other identify fabrics, source fabrics, manufacture fabrics, suggest fabric for SciFi, Fantasy, Anime, or identify what they used in historical clothing. What do you use? What do you recommend? And will you teach a class on that for Costume College 2018?

CALLING ALL RETURNING AND NEW TEACHERS! This is your challenge: How can you incorporate the knowledge of fabric and textiles into your class, even if you have taught or it has been taught before? If you want to teach a class on the Overview of Regency Era- slip in some information on what fabrics were commonly used back then and for what occasion. We've had burn test classes, and will have one this year, I am sure, but is that the ONLY way to identify fabrics? Fabric-centric classes are awesome, and I want to dedicate a certain percentage of Costume College track on that bonus track theme. But I also want this year's classes to be very focused on textiles and their uses. So put on your thinking caps and start planning.

I am really looking forward to class suggestions. Please keep an eye out on deadlines from our Programmers!"
