Cottonwood Center for the Arts is proud to present Textiles West, a new entity devoted to fiber art, design and education. Also a co-working space, Textiles West aims to inspire widespread awareness, participation and appreciation of fiber art with classes, tools and resources for artists, makers and artisans.
With equipment such as an onsite large scale digital printer, as well as dye and stitch labs, artists will be able to achieve their project goals on a professional level, with close control of the process and product. Co-working space will invite collaboration and support, with opportunities for workshops, retreats and exchange programs.
Textiles West offers educational programming that includes lectures, hands-on workshops and intensive retreats featuring national and international teachers. Our annual event, Tactile, is a community textile event designed to unite the community through textile arts and making. Check Textiles West for class and event scheduling and to learn how you can become involved.
Development of the Textiles West program was conceived within Cottonwood Center for the Arts by a team of resident artists. Strategic collaboration and funding from the Richard Petritz Foundation made the launch of this new center possible.
