What's Included

Are you a beginner/intermediate weaver and are ready to explore more complex weave structures and experiment with different fibers and materials? This class is for you! Throughout this 12h course each student will dress a loom with a complex weaving structure ( waffle weave, overshot, seersucker, houndstooth), become more comfortable with reading a weaving draft, have a better understanding of the versatility of the floor loom, and learn how to treat weavings post loom. You can expect to leave this class with an array of samples unique to each student. // Instructor: Amanda Denham

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.
