What's Included

Campers aged 5-6 have fun creating with their peers in age appropriate classes inspired by a current textile related exhibition in New York. Campers will try their hand at printing, felting, sewing, weaving, and dyeing with both natural + synthetic dyes, creating finished projects every week. Every Wednesday, campers venture on a Weaving field trip to the Textile Arts Center Brooklyn for a chance to work on these ancient machines to create their very own contemporary fabric. Each weekly session concludes on Friday afternoon with an Open House, where family and friends are invited to view projects on display! **Brooklyn's 2015 camp site location is at the Berkeley Carroll School in Park Slope at 762 President Street, Brooklyn, NY 11215

About This Organizer

Textile Arts Center aspires to unify and empower the textile community, and advocate for the handmade. 

 

Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. At TAC, we aspire to unify the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven -- common denominators for designers, artists, and creative practitioners around the world. Because these activities are so widely used, they help to foster community and bring creativity back into our daily lives. They are part of our collective history and vital to our ongoing expressions of design, art, and culture.
