Textiles Summer Institute

June 24–August 2, 2019

Join students, artists and designers from around the world and from all backgrounds. Learn with renowned faculty and access the RISD Textile Department’s exceptional facilities.

Material, technique and conceptual development are at the heart of the Textiles Summer Institute philosophy. Small class size and concentrated course structure enable you to create two- and three-dimensional concepts and projects, whether for apparel, interiors or fine art.

You’ll share ideas, experiences and alternative disciplinary approaches through hands-on learning and group critiques. You’ll have the opportunity to work in classroom studio space (as available) and access monitored, course-related labs during non-class hours. Courses meet two days per week for six weeks. Enroll in up to two courses.

Note: Textiles Summer Institute course schedule aligns with Summer Studies for cross-discipline enrollment opportunities.
