This summer, Bard Graduate Center has partnered with Textile Arts Center to run hands-on fiber arts workshops for kids and families. The workshops respond to two exhibitions, Fabricating Power with Balinese Textiles and The Codex and Crafts in Late Antiquity.
Weaving Beaded Jewelry
In this workshop, led by TAC teaching artists, students will learn how to weave with beads while creating a piece of jewelry based on their design (bracelet, necklace pendant, or keychain).
Woven Wall Hangings
In this workshop, led by TAC teaching artists, students will be introduced to the basics of weaving on a frame loom and different tapestry weaving techniques and materials while creating a woven wall hanging based on their design.
Workshops are suitable for kids ages 5-12. All materials are provided. Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs.
