I recently found out about the textile arts center in Brooklyn and thought I'd share. I haven't had a chance to visit them yet but they seem like a great organization. They have a weaving studio and surface design lab as well as a gallery space. Periodically they also take in interns so be sure to be on the look out if you are interested in such an opportunity. They seem to always have a ton of things going on from regularly scheduled classes to workshops and openings.
here is their website: www.textileartscenter.com

I stumbled upon the blog ArtClothText today and thought I'd share. It is written by Canadian textile artist Mackenzie Frere and contains a wealth of fiber related work, exhibitions, featured artists, and events.

As a reminder, today is the last work day of the semester. All projects by non-majors must be removed from the studio by this Friday, May 7th, by 4:00. If you leave anything past that date it will be thrown away. Majors may leave their things in the majors space as long as it is stacked neatly on their table or put away in the lockers. No food may be left anywhere in the studio including lockers. Silkscreens belonging to majors may be left in the washout room over the summer but I would recommend cleaning off the emulsion. Have a nice summer!
