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.
