Get Involved

Getting involved is easy: you can sign up for our newsletter, become an associate or a member, take a class, and have your organization become an institutional sponsor.

Become an Associate
Associate status is one step towards greater involvement in the Studio and potential membership in the co-op. Associates are not eligible to rent studio space at this time. We will soon have our Affinity Program set up where associates can access discounts at selected suppliers and specific Studio sponsored workshops.

To become an associate we just need some of your information. Send us an email and we'll get in contact with you via email or phone. info@textilestudio.ca
