Designers and Artisans Textile Club

The textile club grew organically from the initial class on Textile Design & History, providing a sense of community and a space where we get together, once a week for one hour to share experiences in textile making. We will regularly meet artists, collectors, and experts who will speak on various historical textiles and cultural experiences.

Making textiles while feeling a sense of community promotes well-being during Covid 19. We will continue to design patterns and create textiles together.

Speaker line up: Dates and time TBD
