Textile Arts

The Lillstreet Textile Arts is a growing community interested in traditional and contemporary craft media. Our newly renovated sewing studio offers more class space and upgraded equipment, including an industrial sewing machine, overlock and serger machines. Our print on paper and fabric classes feature a remodeled dark room with a state-of-the-art UV vacuum exposure unit, and we now have a computer station with laser printer for prepping images. The new dye station makes immersion dyeing more user friendly, and our bullet steamer produces professional results. 

 

We have students from a variety of backgrounds, from professional artists who sell at art fairs, online shops, and consignment, to all levels of artists developing skills to build on their portfolio. Make our space your space by taking advantage of free open studio when enrolled in one of our Textile Department classes! Visit the Textiles Department Blog for more information and links to additional resources.

 

Fall classes begin the weeks of September 8 & October 13
