What's Included

Instructor: Victoria Manganiello With very little assembly required, students will spend the majority of this class weaving. With a bead loom, we can produce bracelets, belts, or bands that can be used as an appliqué with another project or as standalone pieces . While bead weaving generally produces rectangular shapes, it is also possible to learn how to create angular and curvy forms too. Your instructor will help you with project planning as well as with starting and finishing techniques. This 3 hour afterwork shop will leave you with the basics skills of bead weaving and included in the cost, is your own bead loom! -- The After Workshops are a series of high quality hands-on classes, at low cost and low commitment. Materials, skills and fun supplied. And it's BYOB.

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.
