Maroney's Path of the Bees thesis installation
Some of the highlights include Winter's "Over/Under" textiles, which explores the many relationships between cloth and weaving; Maroney’s “Path of the Bees,” inspired by its creator’s visit to a woman’s mosque in Damascus and drawing upon embroidery, Arabic calligraphy, pleating and screen-printing technique; and Yun’s “Intangible Moments,” a hand-dyed cloth collection created using a color-layering process that calls to mind the “beauty embedded in our lives and the value of mundane moments.”
Winter's Over/Under textiles
The RISD MFA Textiles program centers on woven, knit and surface design of fabrics used for interiors and apparel, with the first year of study focused on expanding skills, including digital technology use, and building upon students’ creative backgrounds, while the second year lets students explore weaving, knitting or surface designing in depth, with a final-semester thesis project that involves studio work and writing.
