Problem - Consider Robe....what are your associations to robe? What images come to mind? What experiences? Do you have particular feelings or memories that conjure up your meaning of "robe". Is it regal, ceremonial, cozy, revealing, concealing? Use any combination of textile techniques to constructing a Robe that communication what "robe" means to you.

Process & Development - Journal, sketch, sample, share and discuss your ideas with the group, and photo document your problem solving process. Write a statement to be displayed with your work that assists and engages the viewer.
