An Educational, Creative Summer Camp for Kids


Education is an important part of Local Cloth's mission. This summer, they will focus on educating the younger members of the community (ages 6 - 16) with six weeks of half-day summer camps geared to specific age groups. Parents and children will be able to choose between a variety of topics including sewing, knitting, felting, dyeing, block printing, and weaving. All classes will be held at the Local Cloth studio 207 Coxe Ave, Asheville. The price is $125 per week plus materials. Siblings registered for the same class will receive a $25 discount. Please email any questions to summercamp@localcloth.org.
