Textile Design Lab Member Highlight: Cape Cod

Last week we kicked off our third annual Summer of Creativity in the Textile Design Lab. This year’s theme is travel and we will be exploring a new “destination” each week for the next eight weeks.

Our first destination was Cape Cod, a peninsula that extends off the state of Massachusetts. Cape Cod is a popular summer tourist destination in the Northeastern U.S. Strewn with idyllic villages, historic lighthouses, and coastal dunes, Cape Cod is known for its fishing, whale watching, and the artistic mecca of Provincetown at the tip of the peninsula.

Our Textile Design Lab members were given a design brief based upon this destination and we were blown away by what they created in just seven days! Congrats to all the members who completed last week’s brief and I look forward to sharing more work with you next week!

  2. nice results!

    wish i could have been there…but swamped with work and getting ready to go to Indigo in Brussels!

  3. I really love the dune grasses depicted by Stephanie Nehme! I’ve only been to this part of the USA once, but I feel the presence of the cape with this design the most of any of the designs. It just resonates with me.

  4. Such creative people, and to create such creative, cohesive collections in 7 days is inspiring. Well done everyone.
