For fall 2020 TAC is introducing Young Makers at Home! Our Tweens program (ages 11-13) is a Sewing Machine class that incorporates practical skills for using the machine. Learn to make small projects and stretch your skills with a larger quilt that you build on over several classes. If you participated in our tweens class over the summer, there will be opportunities to learn new piecing techniques to add design interest to the projects you create and grow your skills. Sewing Machines are on loan and can be returned to TAC BK or can be purchased at the end of the cycle!

Our Residency Program

When we are able to be in our Brooklyn Studio our Textiles for Tweens program works directly with our very talented, dedicated Artists in Residence. For 9 months, 8 artists and designers work at TAC toward an exhibition, while going through a professional development program. Alongside such artists and designers, our tween students get to observe the professional creative process, develop their own critical dialogue, and receive mentorship.
