W. E. F.T. is a textile education program run by The Weaving Mill in partnership with social services agency Envision Unlimited. We facilitate open-studio workshops in handweaving, sewing, and object design for adults with developmental disabilities. Focusing on collaborative process, a communal studio environment, and creative use of found and recycled materials, W.E.F.T. workshops encourage participants to strengthen their creative and technical muscles through regular practice. The W.E.F.T. program has taken many shapes over the last several years, with emphases on sewing, design, quilting, drawing, and weaving. Through all these different projects and processes, W.E.F.T. participants have built a unique and supportive creative community.
