Programming at the CTS

Mr. ShindoThe Contemporary Textile Studio offers a range of public programming, from ongoing textile classes taught by studio members suitable for first time enthusiasts, to specialized workshops led by well known artists and designers. Every year, the studio brings a guest artist of national or international standing to lead an intensive summer workshop and give a public lecture. We also offer specialized workshops for those active in the fields of design, theatre and film as well as providing instruction to college level classes.


We now have Paypal for payment.

Full payment (tuition and materials fee) is due on or before the first day of class payable by cash, cheque or Paypal. We will e-mail you a confirmation note and materials list for your class.

Contemporary Textile Studio Class or Workshop Cancellation Policy
In order for a class or workshop to run, we require a minimum of 4 students enrolled. We reserve the right to cancel a seminar or workshop 5 business days before the starting date if we do not get the minimum registration needed. In the rare event that we need to cancel a seminar or workshop you are registered in, you will receive a full refund of the fees paid.

As no make-up classes or substitutions are provided, please be sure of your schedule before registering.

Participants who withdraw 5 or more business days before the start of a seminar or workshop will receive a refund minus a $35.00 (+HST) administration fee; after this withdrawal period, refunds will not be issued due to our small class sizes. This policy ensures that teachers are compensated for their time.
