Craft & Design – Textiles

I am particularly drawn to hand techniques in textiles, which ties to my passionate interest in history. These techniques become sources of inspiration for my work.

It is important for me to study the different methods that cultures from around the world use to create their textiles. I want to gain as much knowledge as possible about this variety of techniques, and their histories, making this trip to India very exciting for me. 

As I now prepare for my thesis in fourth year, I am excited to learn and be inspired by the art and life of India, and to meet its artisans. I know that experiencing India’s history of art, craft, and handmaking, and their unmatched quality of textiles and textile techniques, will be astounding. I’m sure they will leave a significant effect upon me and my work.
