This spring, Bard Graduate Center partners with Textile Arts Center to run monthly workshops that respond to our two exhibitions, Fabricating Power with Balinese Textiles and The Codex and Crafts in Late Antiquity, by providing hands-on opportunities to engage with the themes of making, craft traditions, and the production of knowledge that are foregrounded in the exhibitions. Join us to learn backstrap weaving, embroidery, bookbinding, and weaving with beads. A full range of workshops for kids is also available.

Textile Arts Center is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. Textile Arts Center aspires to unite the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven—common denominators for designers, artists, and creative practitioners around the world.
