Creative Arts Workshop: Needle Punch
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. Participants will use a special tool and threads to create a punch needle design on tightly looped fabric. Materials provided.
