Silicone Textile Workshops


Yes, We teach our techniques!

Over the years we have travelled to colleges, universities and conferences round the US and Europe, showing our techniques and teaching silicone modification methods during 2 day workshops to students and educators alike. Please use our contact form for more information about booking a workshop at your location, or visiting New York for one of our comprehensive onsite theatrical workshops. We are also offering week long creative retreats in Mexico, where we not only teach our methods, but intersperse classes with tours to local Mayan crafts studios and homes, and archaelogical sites for inspiration.
