    After Anni Albers immigrated to America with her husband, Josef, in , her writing practice quickly expanded. Through texts published in magazines or catalogues and ultimately in two books—On Designing () and On Weaving ()—she considered terms like “medium” and “design” as they integrated and, in postwar America, increasingly eclipsed the work of “craft.”. Weaving is a method of textile production in which two distinct sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or methods are knitting, crocheting, felting, and braiding or longitudinal threads are called the warp and the lateral threads are the weft, woof, or filling.(Weft is an old English word meaning "that which is woven"; compare leave.

I found this a difficult book to read. It’s academic writing, with lots of references to ideas and philosophies and people and work that I don’t know, using words that I don’t know or know only in a more general sense, not the precise-in-this-field sense.

A selected list of guides to to the Bauhaus school, founded April 1, in Weimar, Germany (moving to Dessau in ) by architect Walter Gropius, and highlights of some of its major figures. Many major 20th-century designers and artists—among them, Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Marcel Breuer, Paul Klee, László Moholy-Nagy, and Mies van der Rohe—were associated with the Bauhaus.

A core member of the experimental approach to textiles at the Bauhaus, Berger experimented with methodology and materials during the course of her studies at the Bauhaus to eventually include plastic textiles intended for mass production.

She applied for a patent for her textile designs which she called "Möbelstoff-Doppelgewebe" in and received it in Bauhaus Weaving Theory: From Feminine Craft to Mode of Design By T’ai Smith University of Minnesota Press The Bauhaus often finds itself name checked in education circles – in my experience evoked with an air of knowing vagueness when referring.

Bauhaus Weaving Theory Book Description: The Bauhaus school in Germany has long been understood through the writings of its founding director, Walter Gropius, and well-known artists who taught there such as Wassily Kandinsky and László Moholy-Nagy. The Bauhaus has therefore established the principle: Each apprentice and journeyman learns simultaneously from two masters, a handicraft master and one master of design.

Both are closely linked. The theory of the crafts and the theory of design provide the basis: no apprentice or journeyman can be freed from one or the other. In Bauhaus Weaving Theory, author T’ai Smith chronicles the Bauhaus weavers’ journey to identify and justify their work through writing.

The book is organized in six parts: an introduction, summarizing the premise of the book, four chapters outlining the efforts and accomplishments of the Bauhaus weavers through the writings of Anni Albers. Her first book, Bauhaus Weaving Theory: From Feminine Craft to Mode of Design, from University of Minnesota Press (November ), looks at how Bauhaus weavers harnessed the language of other media—painting, photography, and architecture—to articulate through essays and textile designs the specificity of their craft.

The Bauhaus school in Germany has been understood through the writings of its founding director Walter Gropius and several artists who taught there: Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and László Moholy-Nagy.

Far less recognized are texts written by women in the school’s weaving workshop. The weavers’ innovativeness can be attributed to their notable textiles products: from colorful.

Inin his book on the theory of art, ‘Creative Confession’, he stated, ‘Art does not reproduce the visible but makes it visible.’ Many other essays and lectures on art education and theory followed, while Klee taught at the Bauhaus: about the study of nature, the creative mindset and form theory.

This book explores the varied legacies, influences, and futures of the Bauhaus. Many of the animating issues of the Bauhaus—its integration of research, teaching, and practice; its experimentation with materials; its democratization of design; its open-minded, heterogeneous approach to ideas, theories, methods, and styles—remain relevant.

"On Weaving is a book that one reads again and again for the insightful logic about the meaning of art, and the reasons and methods governing the creation of good design. Anni Albers is perhaps more relevant today than she was during her lifetime."—Virginia Gardner Troy, author of Anni Albers and Ancient American Textiles: From Bauhaus to.

From colorful, expressionist tapestries to the invention of soundproofing and light-reflective fabric, the workshop’s innovative creations influenced a modernist theory of weaving.The Bauhaus was founded in in the city of Weimar by German architect Walter Gropius. Its core objective was a radical concept: to reimagine the material world to reflect the unity of all the arts.

Gropius explained this vision for a union of crafts, art and technology in the Programm des Staatlichen Bauhauses Weimar (), which described a utopian craft guild combining architecture.Vassily Kandinsky arrived at the Bauhaus already a renowned expert on color theory.

His book On the Spiritual in Art established distinct emotional and spiritual associations between specific colors and forms. He theorized these associations as general artistic principles.
