Textile Center introduces INTERLACE, a series of 8-week long classes geared toward building new skills for the 55+ age group! These sequential classes are perfect for beginners and those with no experience with fiber art. Join our creative community and bring your interest in learning a new skill in a supportive environment, taught by experienced Textile Center instructors. A culminating event for each class will be held at Textile Center to celebrate participants and their accomplishments.

2019 Classes will be announced in February 2019–stay tuned!

Classes are 8 weeks, 3 hours per class.
Limited scholarships are available!
