Textile Design Lab Member Highlight: Japan
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.
After exploring Cape Cod, we traveled to Japan. We explored the history of the Japanese techniques of katagami, katazome, and shibori and how they are relevant in today’s marketplace.
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!
