CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

 

Weaving:

There is nothing like weaving on a loom. Students delight in mastering this ancient machine to create their very own fabric.  Simple enough for beginners, with endless room for exploration.  

 

 

 

 

Printing & Dyeing:

Transform a blank canvas into beautiful artwork soft to the touch.  In this dynamic class, students use colorful synthetic and natural dye and printing processes, creating projects with fabric of their own design.

 

 

 

Sewing & Soft Sculpture:

Students explore soft sculpture, creating stuffed animals and three dimensional objects working with sewing patterns and creating their own sewing pattern and fabric of their own design.  This class will utilize hand sewing, machine sewing, felting, and mixed media textile techniques.

 

 

 

 

 

Sewing & Fashion:

TAC kids are always fashion forward.  Through a series of sewing and fashion projects, students learn to use the sewing machine and express their individuality through their handmade wearable art.
