Summer at TAC

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.

TAC Staff

TAC staffers are all working artists, designers, researchers, creative practitioners, trained and passionate about working with creative young people. We pride ourselves in creating a nurturing camp community with attention to each individual child while fostering an engaging group dynamic. Campers are sure to leave with incredible textiles, great friendships, and lasting memories.
