Creative Arts Workshop – Punch Needle with Pam Shanley
Learn the basics of needle punch with local fiber artist Pam Shanley. Needle punching is an art technique of looping yarn, floss, or ribbon in the form of a pattern through fabric. The looping gives the pattern a raised appearance. It is often considered painting with threads. Needle punching is used to embroider items, create wall hangings, ornaments, pillows, rugs, and other décor and crafts. Folk Art type images are often featured in this craft, but the sky is the limit for design ideas. Participants will use a special tool and threads to create a punch needle design on tightly hooped fabric. Materials provided.
Registration opens July 1 and closes at 5 p.m July 21.
