The Textile Studio

A collection of looms, yarns, spinning wheels, sewing machines, and various other supplies and tools. 

 

Restoring the arts that have strong historical roots in our community, strengthening collaborations with local artists and guilds, establishing new skills and opportunities in our area, and confirming community through art for all generations!

We have a fully functioning Pottery Studio, Textile Studio, artist studio space, artist exhibits, and various youth and community art opportunities throughout the year.

THE LOOMS

The best part about the Textile Studio is its history. Each loom has a story to tell and was donated from local art facilities or weavers. We are not currently renting space on looms but hope to in the future.

CLASSES

We offer a variety of classes from Scandinavian Weaving, Rag Rug Weaving, to family friendly classes, and community knitting groups. We have sought out experienced instructors that share the same goal.
