Join us with a commitment to renew, inspire, and grow your creative practice with a Guest Teaching Artist Class!

These 2 – 5 day classes are just the ticket to introduce new ideas, build on old ones, and learn new fiber art skills in a supportive and rigorous learning environment!

We hope to schedule new classes in Summer 2023–so keep an eye on this page and our Textiles on the Town newsletter for announcements!


At this time, Textile Center is offering live in-person and digital classes with local instructors through our Adult Class program (click HERE for current offerings), and we are working on growing our schedule back to full capacity in the coming year. All updates to these special intensive classes will be communicated here, as we are closely following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health.  Future program plans will be announced on this page and in our Textiles on the Town newsletter as soon as it is safe to convene these immersive experiences again!

Step up your textile game with our national and international Guest Teaching Artists — right here in MN!

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.

New additions to this incredible roster will be posted frequently, and first announced through our weekly Textile Tuesday and our bi-weekly Textiles on the Town E-newsletters.
