What's Included

Instructor: Joey Casey Weaving is back at TAC NYC! In this workshop you'll learn basic weaving techniques on a two harness floor loom, exploring woven design options, through experimenting with color and texture. Students will work on pre dressed looms, and experiment painting their warp with textile inks to create imagery or pattern for their woven swatch. A great introduction for new weavers, no experience is necessary! 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.
