DATES: 11/1, 11/8, 11/15, (SKIPS 11/22), 11/29 Instructor: Isa Rodrigues, www.isarodrigues.net Are you novice weaver and are ready for the next step? This is the right follow-up class. In this class, students will continue their knowledge of weaving techniques, further exploring woven design options, through experimenting with color and texture. Students will dress their own loom, learn proper technique for painting their warp and weft with dyes and inks to create imagery or pattern for their woven cloth, and other weaving techniques such as tapestry and pile weaving. Pre-requisites: Weaving 101, or equivalent weaving experience -- Our classes are designed to focus on a learned skill rather than a final product. At TAC, our mission is to provide skills and knowledge for a lifetime! All materials for sample making and learning the technique are included. Any additional materials will need to be supplied by the student based on their vision. 4 week students have access to Open Studio time for free during the month of class and for up to a week after the class, to put their new knowledge to practice.

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.
