Membership

We rely on our members' diverse backgrounds and perspectives to spark innovation and creativity. We invite textile-based artists, designers, and craftspeople with skill, originality, co-operative values, and a passion for textiles to become members of our beautiful co-operative studio.

Our mission is to promote, support, and facilitate innovative textile design and education in Canada. Prospective members must be committed to sharing a studio space and collaborating to sustain and grow our co-operative by participating in work groups and joint projects.

The CTSC is strongly committed to equity and diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from Black, Indigenous, and people of colour, persons with disabilities, persons of all sexual and gender identities, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas and practices. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.

Under normal circumstances, there’s scheduled 24-hour / 7 days a week access to the studio. During the time of Covid19, access is planned so that all members can come in at least once a week

Members contribute towards the costs of the space and general Studio supplies, and lend their skills and enthusiasm to the direction and development of our unique non-profit, artist-run co-op.
