The Textiles Department at Lillstreet welcomes and accommodates students of all levels. Our classes explore traditional methods as well as contemporary experimentation. Whether you sew, print, dye, weave, embroider, knit, or crochet, we have the perfect class for you. Our student population is diverse- from professional artists and entrepreneurs to those who enjoy working with their hands and want to explore something new. Our teaching artists will guide you as you turn your project ideas into one-of-a-kind completed works of functional, decorative, or fine art. We welcome and support all bodies and gender expressions.
