Every year, the Contemporary Textile Studio Co-op brings a guest artist of national or international standing to lead an intensive summer workshop and give a public lecture. These workshops are open to the public and also provide professional development for studio members. Workshop leaders have included Maxine Sutton (England), India Flint (Australia), Sandra Brownlee (Canada), Dawn Dupree (UK) and Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada (Japan).

In 2016 guest artists included Rebeca Burgess, an internationally recognized educator and leader in the area of natural dyes and Dorothy Caldwell, who taught a workshop in June.

This year international visiting artists Aurore Thibout & Laurence Teillet will be teaching a Textile Surface + Garment Workshop in June 2017. Three workshops co-presented with Craft Ontario are also scheduled in June - please check out our programming page for more information.
