Textiles exist in nearly every aspect of our everyday lives and function in the world of utility as well as fine art & design. Learning about how something is made and the labor that goes into an object promotes appreciation of making and our ecological impacts. Textile Arts Center empowers youth to see themselves as the makers and innovators of the future and to continue a love of textiles long after summer camp is over.
