Youth Field Trips for lower and middle schools are designed with the visiting teacher's classroom curriculum in mind. If you would like to focus on a specific time or culture please just let us know and we will include interesting and relevant textile facts in the introduction and demonstration.
The visit starts with a short introduction to the Textile Arts Center and the day's activity, providing context for the hands on activity. The introduction is followed by a demonstration of materials and proper use of equipment. The rest of the time, about 45 minutes, is spent hands-on, exploring the art of weaving and/or indigo dyeing.
