What's Included

Do you find yourself admiring the items you can really use in life? That great duffle bag that holds all of your stuff or a sturdy backpack you can throw on and take to the beach or just a really nice tote made to withstand the everyday trudging through the streets of NYC? In this class you can design your very own and learn how to make it! We will be learning about how to select the correct fabric, produce strong seams, make awesome pockets and also set in zippers. This class allows students to explore the more utilitarian side of sewing and culminates in producing a uniquely designed piece. Some sewing experience necessary. Pre-Requisite: Sewing 101 or equivalent sewing experience (sewing machine + basic construction knowledge) 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. Students have access to Open Studio time for free for the duration of the class, to put their new knowledge to practice.

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.
