What's Included

DATES: 2/4, 2/11, 2/18, (SKIPS 2/25), 3/4 Instructor: Isa Rodrigues, www.isarodrigues.net Weaving 104: Garments class is an introduction on how to design and weave small garments on a floor loom. Students will learn how to plan a weaving project, choose fibers based on their qualities, shape a garment on the loom, discover finishing techniques, and leave with a hand-woven garment based on their vision. In order to enable enough time for weaving, students will have two weeks of open studio between the third class on 2/18 and final class on 3/4 with no additional open studio time after the last class. class one (2/4): designing the project, discussing fibers, warp/weft calculations class two (2/11): dressing the loom class three (2/18): weaving + problem solving (2 weeks of open studio after this class) class four (3/4): finishing techniques + assembling (no open studio after this class) Materials: Students will have the option to source their own materials based on their vision; or use materials available at TAC. Pre-Requisite: At least two weaving classes at TAC or equivalent experience on a floor loom (must be comfortable dressing a loom). -- 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 class.

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.
