ABOUT TEXTILE ARTS CENTER

 

Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility founded in 2009 dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. TAC’s mission is to unify and empower the textile community.  We do this by providing accessible, skills-based classes, artists programs, and community events to reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts.  We’re proud to offer a diverse range of programming from a fully equipped 6,800 square foot studio in Brooklyn, and a 900 square foot studio in Manhattan.
