        Instructor: Betsy Holmes

Textiles are so much more than fabric for clothing; they are the product of a fundamental human activity across time and culture. Textiles create beauty, express identity, display power and tell stories. This three-week course provides insights into a society’s history, economics, class structure and spiritual traditions. In this course we will target three areas: Asia, the Middle East and the Americas, and will examine the basic techniques of textile production in a historic and cultural context while viewing a wide variety of examples from each area.

Betsy Holmes is a plein air artist, retired library director and lifelong learner.  She has taught art history courses at Saint Anselm College, New England College, and NH Institute of Art with an emphasis on non-Western art.
