The third installment of filming from the ACC's Arrowmont School Workshops, June 1-8, 1971. This exerpt of fiber artist Walter Nottingham's art history lecture focuses on a selection of ceremonial objects and important works of fiber art. After discussing the material and aesthetic benefits of weaving and quilting, Nottingham examines an array of basketry and crocheted works. His lecture concludes with a lengthy discussion of a piece of his own work: a large woven sheet cascading haphazardly down a plexiglass cube atop a geometric museum pedestal. The final minutes of the video revisit ceramicist Michael Cardew as he finishes a small bowl on the wheel. As he finalizes its form he slows the wheel to work quitely on a decorative pattern.
