Through daily exposure to textile media, kids explore new avenues of creativity, improve their dexterity, and make new friends while learning about historical and contemporary use of the fiber arts. In addition to structured class and craft time there is daily free play and playground visits, weather permitting.


Campers aged 7 - 10 spend time at TAC daily, for project-based classes inspired by their weekly field trip to a current textile related exhibition in New York.  Each weekly session concludes on Friday afternoon with an Open House where family and friends are invited to view projects on display!

 

At registration, your child can choose between:

 

    WEAVING

 

    There is absolutely nothing like weaving on a

    loom. Campers delight in mastering this ancient

    machine to create their very own contemporary

   fabric used to create their final projects. Simple

   enough for beginners, with endless room for

   exploration.

 

 

 

 

SURFACE DESIGN

 

Campers will learn the basics of surface design through printing, dyeing, felting, sewing, drawing and design. Campers explore stencils, block printing, and photo emulsion processes, as well as about resist and immersion dyeing with both natural + synthetic dyes. Fabrics created are used toward their completely unique final projects!
