Dr. Amanda Thompson, Associate Professor in the Department of Clothing, Textiles, and Interior Design, created an informative, creative textile exhibit on the 3rd floor of Doster Hall. Using QR codes that link to more information about each piece in the exhibit, viewers can explore the history and technique of the various textiles and patterns on display. For example, items in the display that feature Mayan Weaving patterns have a QR code that that provides the technique, general processes used to make the designs, the traditional materials used, and how the designs are used in popular culture today. There is even information on where to find items for purchase and how much they might cost. Other textile examples in the exhibit include Japanese Arashi Shibori, Japanese Yuzen, Indian Resist-Dyeing, Wycinanki Polish Embroirdery, Northwest US 1st Nation Chilkat Weaving, Norwegian Knitting, and Japanese Sashiko.
