What is Art Camp?

Art Camp is a gathering of  Texas weavers in the even numbered years between Contemporary Handweavers of Texas conferences.  Why wait two years to be with your weaving and fiber friends? CHT Art Camp is a smaller, more low key retreat  for kindred spirits — weavers, spinners, basket makers and more —  to get together for fun, fellowship and creating.  Please join us as we gather again in 2020 for fibers, fun and relaxation in the beautiful Texas Hill Country!

We have some really fun workshops and evening sessions this year.

The 2 day workshops being offered are:

  • Beginning Tapestry Weaving, Sherri Woodard Coffey
  • Deflected Double Weave, Deborah Harrison 
  • Basketweave Bowls:  Round reed bowl and flat twill weave bowl, Cricket Rose
  • Visible Mending / Boro, Christine Miller
  • Independent Study

The 4 short evening sessions we have lined up are:

  • Fabulous Finish: Fasteners with Fashionable Flair, Cate Buchanan
  • Ribbon Birds, Rasa Silenas
  • Loom TLC, Al Hoerig
  • Tila Bead Beaded Bracelet, Peggy Friedrichs

We’re also planning something fun to do together on Friday, the Art Camp Mixer. It’s still in the planning stages, but it will involve you bringing the first, or first-ish, thing you wove and something recent. So put that on your packing list!

Art Camp is a residential camp with accommodations in two bedroom condos.  The breakout rooms are spacious and the evening gathering space very large. There is a large heated pool for your enjoyment and a fire Sunday evening complete with s’mores. Seven meals are included with menu flexibility for special requests. 

Registration opens November 15, 2019  and closes February 20, 2020.

Workshop descriptions, schedule and the registration booklet are now up on the CHT website at and you can contact also contact me, Inga Marie Carmel,  at [email protected] with any questions or suggestions.

The fee for lodging, meals, conference facility fees, taxes and instruction is  $395 for a double room and $515 for a single.

Scholarships are available at or contact Jenny Barker at [email protected]
