The mission of Viola Textile Studio is to empower, educate, and advocate for the handmade. Located in the Fox Park neighborhood of St. Louis, the studio hosts monthly workshops for educators, specialized technical classes, and community celebrations – all revolving around textiles. Every community worldwide carries textile histories and traditions. From the clothes we wear to the fabrics that adorn our home, we engage with thousands of years of making every day. Viola Textile Studio teaches classes on weaving, dyeing, printed textiles, sewing, feltmaking, and basketry.
