What's Included

Through daily exposure to textile media, kids explore new avenues of creativity, improve their dexterity, and make new friends while learning about historical and contemporary use of the fiber arts. In addition to structured class and craft time there is daily free play and playground visits, weather permitting. Campers aged 7-10 visit TAC daily, for project-based classes inspired by their weekly field trip to a current textile related exhibition in New York. Each weekly session concludes on Friday afternoon with an Open House where family and friends are invited to view projects on display!

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.
