TAC AT HOME AFTER SCHOOL SCHEDULE
We are pleased to introduce TAC at Home After School for Cycle 4! Class sessions will run from 4 - 5:30pm. For the first few sessions we will be working with materials that you can find around your house to build the skills we will be using for the remainder of the cycle. Caregivers will receive a survey with their confirmation email in order to arrange a contactless delivery or pick up from BK TAC of an After School kit. Shipping available by request.
Monday’s Weaving class will be matched with rigid heddle looms (including necessary exploration materials).
Tuesday-Thursday’s Surface Design class will be matched with an array of materials that will allow students to explore an array of techniques encompassing sewing, printing + dyeing and soft sculpture.
Registrations are rolling and prorated options are listed in Active (through the registration link below) if the cycle has already begun! We hope you will join us for TAC at Home!

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.
We aspire to unify and empower the textile community and advocate for the handmade.
