I am seriously trying to figure out how I can manage to take another week off this year to go on this incredible trip upstate run by the Textile Arts Center! Yoga classes, delicious food, a week in the country air AND weaving classes. Yes please!
In short: Summer Camp for adults.
In these 5-day retreats, explore your textile dreams in an intense way. Make new friends, and learn something new. Click here for more info.
Each day students enjoy two class times in semi- outdoor studios, open studio time, local activities, and family-style meals made with local food. Tuition includes instruction, materials, food, and lodging at the uber-cute B&B - Keshini Fiber Farm and Inn. Email or call us for more information, or complete your application at textileartscenter. com.
