Tracy Krumm is an artist and educator who has exhibited, taught, and lectured extensively for nearly 30 years. She received her BFA with High Distinction from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1987 and her MFA in visual art from Vermont College in 1995. Her work integrates hand-constructed textile processes with found materials and forged steel to comment on labor, identity, human connectivity, and cultural production. Her current work investigates the intersection of creative experience, simultaneous occurrence, and transformation. The manipulation of form through low tech and high tech processes, along with explorations in material studies, are at the core of her research. Krumm has exhibited internationally in over 175 gallery and museum exhibitions during the past 25 years including the Cheongju Biennial, South Korea; the Triennial of Textiles, Central Museum, Lodz, Poland; the 4th Betonac Prize, Sint Truiden, Belgium; the New Mexico Museum of Art; the Denver Art Museum; the Kohler Art Center, Sheboygan, WI; and the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC, where she was named a Woman to Watch in 2012.
Surface Design: Textile Techniques in Metal
This objective of this workshop course is to introduce the use of metal as the primary material in the basic construction methods of fiber processes such as coiling, twining, plaiting, weaving, braiding, knotting, knit, and crochet. Basic demonstrations of a number of these processes will be given. Students at more advanced levels of textile construction, such as proficiency in knitting, crochet, bobbin lace and tatting, will be encouraged to investigate the use of metal in terms of content and concept based issues with their work, and to explore the questions—Why use metal? What does it do for my work that is necessary and essential to my ideas about what I want to make?
