The next generation of promising textile designers in Israel
‘Every year,” says Hadas Himmelschein, head of the Department of Textile Design at Shenkar College, “we wait to see the message that our graduates will bring to the coming years and what the future will look like through their eyes. In the world of corona, these questions take on added significance, and something new will emerge from the restrictions and limitations created by the virus.
”Shenkar College, one of Israel’s leading universities, combines faculties of engineering, design and art, allowing students to combine cutting-edge technologies with contemporary design and artistic concepts. This year’s graduating students approached their senior thesis project influenced by the impact that the coronavirus has had on the world. Shenkar’s newly minted graduates will be presenting their thesis projects throughout the campus on a variety of subjects, including society, medicine, economics, feminism, pride and independence.
