To follow the materials
This chapter investigates the role and function of textile materials in relation to corrective sequences in craft education. The analyses explicate how problems are detected, how problems are diagnosed and how problems are corrected and solved. When students encounter problems related to their making of a textile object, there is a disruption in the progression of the activity. Disruptions in progressivity in the analysed setting are not heard in intervening talk, but seen in the ways the materials have turned out. Correspondingly, actions used to overcome these problems, whether conducted in talk or otherwise, are not done on talk but on actions and materials involved in the making of objects.
