HECOL576 - Textile Analysis and Care

The causes of deterioration and damage in modern and historic textiles are addressed. Macro and microscopic evidence are combined with theories of fibre degradation and textile soiling to identify the causes of material wear, discoloration and failure during normal use, care, and storage. Theory related to the cleaning of textiles will include detergency, bleaching, dry-cleaning and specialized procedures for historical textiles. Lectures and labs are the same as for HECOL 476, but with additional assignments and evaluation appropriate to graduate studies. Prerequisite: consent of the instructor. Normally offered in alternate years.
