Textiles As Art

- Mar 07, 2019-

Traditionally the term art was used to refer to any skill or mastery, a concept which altered during the Romanticperiod of the nineteenth century, when art came to be seen as "a special faculty of the human mind to be classified with religion and science". This distinction between craft and fine art is applied to the textile arts as well, where the term fiber art or textile art is now used to describe textile-based decorative objects which are not intended for practical use.
