We will begin running a new series of textile workshops in the gallery in arc.hive in August 2017. These community-based, hands-on classes will run in small groups with a maximum of 8 participants for each workshop. All materials are included with workshop fees and no experience is necessary to register. Registration is done online and payment is completed by an e-transfer after registration space is confirmed. To find out more about the instructor, please see below.
