Textile Arts Center Summer Camp welcomes campers ages 5-13 to create and connect with the world of contemporary and historical textiles in interactive and exciting week long programs.
With each new session of camp your child will create an in depth project in Weaving Class or Textile Surface Design Class, as well as daily craft projects using fiber and textile processes and concepts drawn from the exhibition we visit on our field trip.
Textiles exist in the world of utility as well as fine art and exist in nearly every aspect of our everyday life. Learning about how something is made and the labor that goes into it promotes appreciation of makers and our ecological impact. We empower youth to see themselves as the makers and innovators of the future and to continue their relationship with textiles well after their week at TAC.
TAC staffers are all working artists, designers, researchers, creative practitioners, trained and passionate about working with creative young people. We pride ourselves on creating a nurturing camp community with attention to each individual while fostering an engaging group dynamic. Campers are sure to leave with incredible textiles, great friendships, and lasting memories.
