Textile Conversations Members Only

A Textile Conversation: A monthly gathering for Textiles West members to share our passion for textiles and enjoy the company of fellow textile lovers. This salon will be a place for sharing ideas and current work as well as offer a place to learn and grow as a textile enthusiast or artist. Each month we will have a topic for discussion or a short presentation to get the conversation started. We will have tea available and you are welcome to bring any beverage or tasty snack as you desire.

Class Levels: 

These guidelines are meant to help you choose the perfect class for you. 

Fascination – These classes will introduce you to a new skill, concept or technique and are open to all levels. The student may, however, be required to have a basic skill or have taken a certification class. For example, for a flat-pattern drafting class one need not know anything about flat-pattern drafting but should have a basic understanding of the sewing machine. Any prerequisites will be listed in the class description.

Concentration – The student will be invited to learn more about a certain subject and be expected to have had some experience with it or have taken a prior class. These classes will probably involve several sessions.
 
Saturation – Students are invited to delve deeply into the subject being taught. Instructors will expect students to be very familiar with the subject and will be teaching with the intent of advancing those skills.


For all our classes be sure to bring your curiosity, a sense of playfulness and a willingness to explore!

If you aren't sure if you are ready for a class just email us and we are happy to help.
