Tactile: Celebrating the Art of Human Craft in Textiles and Fiber

When: Sat., Oct. 22, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. 2016

In a town with abundant makerspaces and art studios, it's interesting to note that — until today — we haven't had a co-working studio specifically for textile and fiber artists. That's why Cottonwood Center for the Arts has stepped up and filled that particular hole with Textiles West, a whole entity devoted to textiles, with a digital printer and a large-scale loom on which fiber artists can make and collaborate on new creations. Today, the general public can get a taste of the new space with "Tactile," a day of demonstrations and lectures; make-and-take classes in felted balls, block printing and weaving; and even a few live alpacas and yaks to meet (and pet, of course). It promises to be an exciting celebration for an exciting addition to our arts community. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., 427 E. Colorado Ave., free, see cottonwoodcenterforthearts.com for a full schedule of demos, classes and lectures. — Alissa Smith
