Join Textiles West for the grand opening celebration of TWIL, our new makerspace at Manitou ArtCenter. Textiles West Innovation Lab (TWIL) is a space designed for everyone who has ever wanted to play with fiber….and we aren’t talking about cereal. TWIL is designed to promote textile play, innovation, collaboration and community. 

Why Blue Hands you ask? Indigo! We are going to be dyeing up a storm! Bring a white or light colored cotton tee shirt or bring a half yard of fabric and learn about this magical dye plant. Dye one small item on us. If you become addicted (we know you will) you may dye additional items at a special price. We will have t-shirts and fat quarters for sale as well! This is a fundraiser so let's all pitch in and help support Textiles West!

Tour our new space to discover the equipment available for use, sign up for classes and workshops, become a member. TWIL will be hosting textile demos during the day. Food and libations will be available. 

All ages welcome! Bring the whole family and spend some time dyeing and learning about what we are doing with TWIL and how you can become involved!
