After School Classes (ages 5-10) are hands-on classes in the textile arts. Our After School program runs from 3pm–6pm* Monday through Thursday in Brooklyn. Classes run in 8-week cycles, rotating through Weaving, Printing & Dyeing, Sewing & Soft Sculpture, and Sewing & Fashion. You can try one or all four! Check out our Tweens program (ages 11-14) on Thursdays!

Please read our TAC Studio Safety and Terms and Conditions before participating in any TAC programming.

*3-4pm is snack and homework time as students get picked up and dropped off. Class starts at 4pm.

Class Descriptions

Weaving
There is nothing like weaving on a loom. Students delight in mastering this ancient machine to create their very own fabric. Simple enough for beginners, with endless room for exploration. ​
Printing & Dyeing
Transform a blank canvas into beautiful artwork soft to the touch. In this dynamic class, students use colorful synthetic and natural dye and printing processes, creating projects with fabric of their own design.
Sewing & Soft Sculpture
Students explore soft sculpture, creating stuffed animals and three dimensional objects working with sewing patterns and creating their own sewing pattern and fabric of their own design. This class will utilize hand sewing, machine sewing, felting, and mixed media textile techniques.
Sewing & Fashion
TAC kids are always fashion forward. Through a series of sewing and fashion projects, students learn to use the sewing machine and express their individuality through their handmade wearable art.
