Textiles West, our local textile art organization, routinely hosts classes and workshops to help folks learn how to spin, dye, weave, knit and crochet fiber art and goods. But only once a year do they host their textile community celebration, Tactile. In its third year, this fiber art fiesta includes demonstrations of fiber art techniques (as well as wood turning and block printing), and features lectures about global weaving cooperatives and contemporary fiber art. As an added bonus, you can meet some of the animals behind the yarn, from sheep and alpaca to angora rabbits.
