This month’s sketchbook images are brought to you by Master of Art + Design student Adrienne McKenzie.
If you were here this past spring, it would have been hard for you to miss the perfectly draped knitwear that enveloped Roy Gussow’s ellipsoidal sculpture affectionately known as “The Egg” in the courtyard between Brooks and Kamphoefner Hall. Yarn bombing, also known as guerrilla knitting or knit graffiti, isn’t something you see too often around these parts of Raleigh but Art + Design Senior Tori Dubinski saw the perfect opportunity to introduce the concept to the design community by yarn bombing a well known symbol on campus.
Funding for the 2012 Cotton Initiative was awarded in whole through a competitive grant presented to the College of Design by the Importer Support Program of the Cotton Board and Cotton Incorporated. The aim of this initiative is to encourage students, enrolled in fibers studios and technical classes at the college to design and create work using cotton as a material of choice. All pieces were chosen by judges from Cotton Incorporated for their use and innovation using 60% – 100% cotton.

College of Design student Leigh Hawkins doesn’t consider herself a fashion designer. But her volunteer efforts are helping to bring student fashion – and art – to the stage.
Art to Wear is now in its tenth year as a student-run collaboration between the Colleges of Design and Textiles. As co-director of the show, Hawkins is helping to make sure that 11 specialized committees can pull off the April 12 event in Reynolds Coliseum, which last year drew more than 3,000 attendees.
It’s perhaps the largest fashion and wearable art show in the Southeast.
As for her own studies, Hawkins is focused on producing woven art. She’s traveled all the way to Prague to learn new ways of envisioning fiber forms. Along the way, she’s often pleasantly surprised to find herself specializing in an art medium she was barely aware of when she applied to NC State in high school.
