"Being creative is not so much the desire to do something as the listening to that which wants to be done: The dictation of the materials." -Anni Albers
Welcome to Viola Textile Studio. Our mission is to empower, educate, and advocate for the handmade. Located in the Fox Park neighborhood of St Louis, Viola Textile Studio hosts monthly workshops for educators, specialized technical classes, and community celebrations – all revolving around textiles.
We create opportunities for learning, creativity, and engagement with others. Every community worldwide carries textile histories and traditions. From the clothes we wear to the fabrics that adorn our home, we engage with thousands of years of making every day. Viola Textile Studio teaches classes on weaving, dyeing, printed textiles, sewing, feltmaking, and basketry.
