For fall 2020 TAC is introducing Young Makers at Home! We have two options now available for our Tweens! Choose between our 6-Week Cycle Tweens program (ages 11-13) and our Tweens Craft Collective (ages 11-15).

Our 6-Week Cycle program is a Sewing Machine class that incorporates practical skills for using the machine. Learn to make small projects and stretch your skills with larger quilting projects that you build on over several classes. Sewing Machines can be rented and returned to TAC BK or can be purchased at the end of the cycle!

The Tweens Craft Collective is a Saturday night series designed for our social group of Tweens. Each session will have a specific crafting theme, a textile process, time to socialize and create with friends. These are available individually so you can join one, or multiple sessions! 

Materials are available as an add-on purchase during registration for 6-Week Cycles and Tweens Craft Collective.

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.
