Come and celebrate 25 years of Textile Center excellence during a special summer of workshops to guide, inspire, and grow your creative practice!

Announcing our Guest Teaching Artist Workshops

Step up your textile game with our national and international Guest Teaching Artists — right here in Minnesota! These artist educators are highly regarded in the field of textiles and fiber for their artistic achievements and excellence as educators. Textile Center welcomes all creatives and wannabees to try something new or push the boundaries of what you already know by participating in an immersive experience with an expert in the field.
