"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. We create opportunities for learning and creativity - all revolving around textiles. Every community worldwide carries rich 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, natural dyeing, printed textiles, sewing, and basketry.
Resources for Educators
Viola Textile Studio offers online and in-person professional development workshops for educators. With video tutorials, zoom meetings, and supply kits mailed to your school in advance, we will create interactive textile workshops which can be attended virtually. Each workshop is structured to meet the needs of your teachers, students, and school.
