The Fiber Arts area offers courses in Fiber Design and Weaving.

The studio includes facilities for various surface processes such as screen-printing and dye work, as well as cloth construction on tapestry, four- and eight-harness floor looms. Including the recent upgrade of fourteen new Schacht 4 and 8 harness floor looms and twenty new tapestry looms. Traditional and contemporary approaches in both two and three dimensions are explored.

Lynn Cornelius, head of the Fibers area in the School of Art & Design, led her students in the collaboration of creating a fantastical garden intended to surprise and delight people as they went about their everyday routine of waiting for a bus.
