Lectures and Events

January through November, TAC sponsors monthly programs. Most programs are illustrated lectures by recognized experts in their fields or by working textile artists.

Hands-on workshops in the textile arts are sometimes given in conjunction with a TAC lecture. These workshops provide an opportunity for participants to experience the process of creating or embellishing textiles while working with experts in the textile field. Workshops are limited to a small number of participants.

Lectures are held in the Koret Auditorium of the de Young Museum or the Florence Gould Theater at the Legion of Honor.

Admission to our programs is FREE for Textile Arts Council Members, $10 General Admission, $5 Students and FAMSF members. Museum admission fee applies when lectures are held at the Legion of Honor.
