EDUCATION
1985-1986   BFA. Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA. USA

1982-1984   Michaelis School of Art, University of Cape Town, South Africa

1979-1981   B.Des. Shenkar College of Fashion and Textile Technology, Tel Aviv, Israel

Studied Textile Design with a focus on the planning of a fabric’s structure (whether woven or knitted, non-woven or lace, etc.), the designing of the pattern on the fabric’s surface (print, embroidery etc.) and the development of textile products for a wide variety of applications and fields, from fashion and interiors to art.

 

The field interweaves traditional crafts, advanced industrial design and development and production of smart materials using high-end technologies. The integrative and fundamentally interdisciplinary nature of textile design is expressed in the close link between experimental creative ability, visual and material research and technological knowledge and skill.
