Cedars Textile Arts Collaborative

Cedars Community Connections        Cedars Fine Art Studios          Cedars Textile Arts Collaborative          

In the Cedars Textile Arts Collaborative day program, people decide how they want to earn income and are offered a wide range of work opportunities to choose from.

Members in this collaborative are professional weavers and artists, or they can choose to be Hands and Earth Co-op Members and run their own business.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our well-equipped studio contains a vast selection of table and floor looms, from simple table looms to 16 harness compu-dobby looms.
 

Production weavers create custom designs, which they sell through Artist Within - A Cedars Gallery.

Textile Arts

Hands and Earth Co-op

Co-op members run their own business and maintain and expand our one-acre fruit and vegetable garden. Work is done year-round to grow seedlings, plant beds, harvest crops, and sell produce at our Farm stand in front of San Anselmo town hall. Co-op members also do landscape maintenance for private homes in gardening crews.

Co-op members also create beautiful crafts that are for sale at our Farm stand and our annual craft fair held in November. Please contact us for dates.

Hands & Earth Farmstand (in front of San Anselmo Town Hall)

May to September

Wednesdays, 11am - 1pm

Healthy Eating

Participants of Hands and Earth Co-op work in our Magic Kitchen and prepare a healthy vegetarian lunch each day for everyone in the Textile Art Collaborative.

Animal Husbandry

Caring for another living being brings its own rewards. Co-op members work with sheep, mohair goats, alpacas and angora rabbits.  These wonderful creatures provide natural fibers that are used in many areas of the program.
Co-op members host school groups and teach them about natural fibers. Co-op members also tend beehives and spin and sell honey.

Barn Art Studio

In our Barn Art Studio, artists express their creativity in a range of mediums and art disciplines. Artists sell their work at Artist Within – a Cedars Gallery in San Anselmo.

Music and Dance

Our musicians explore a variety of instruments and genres to inspire their musical talents. They become members of a band and perform at special events.

Dancers practice weekly from spring to fall for performances on site at TAC throughout the summer months.  Each performance is unique with hand-made costumes and props.  Please see contact information below to inquire about performances and times.

Senior Program

Retired individuals determine and plan their own activities on a daily basis. They may choose from a range of work opportunities, community-based activities, volunteer projects as well as music and art projects on site.
