TAC Studio Safety

Thank you for being a part of programming at Textile Arts Center (TAC). Below you can find our most up-to-date safety protocols for entering the TAC studio.


  • Masks must fit well and be worn over your nose and mouth in the studio at all times 
  • TAC stocks adult and child size surgical masks for all community members passing through our doors. 
  • For increased protection, N95 and KN95 masks are recommended.


  • We require full vaccination for the following programs
    • Adult Classes
    • Studio Passes
    • Summer Camp
    • After School
    • Mini Camps
    • Birthday Parties
    • Group Classes


  • Use an alcohol based hand sanitizer upon entry and wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Stay home if you have had contact with Covid-19, or if you are experiencing any symptoms. For a full list of Covid-19 symptoms please refer to this list from the CDC. Email for any credit inquiries.
  • Wear a mask at all times
  • Social distance when possible.
  • Get your flu shot — it’s not too late. Although the Flu shot will not protect you from COVID-19, it will help prevent the Flu which has similar symptoms to this coronavirus.


  • TAC has a clean as-you-go policy, wipe down surfaces and equipment you have used with provided disinfectants.
  • Windows at TAC remain OPEN and ceiling fans ON during studio hours to maintain airflow through the studio - even in cold weather, so do bring warm layers.
  • Adult Class students are not permitted to eat in the TAC studio. If you are here for an adult day-long class there are many cafés less than a block away. 
  • After School, Mini Camp, Summer Camp, or Birthday Parties will social distance indoors or eat outside when the weather permits. 
  • Bring a labeled, reusable water bottle, we have a water cooler on site for refills.
