Join us for Get Looped! with Joan Namkoong

Looping is an ancient fiber technique where one thread travels in and out and crosses itself to form a stitch that does not unravel. Looping can form bags and vessels, surround an object or become an art piece. It’s a simple and relaxing technique with few rules, uses just a needle and thread and lots of your creativity!

What to bring: 

  • Supply fee: $10 payable to instructor for waxed linen
  • Large eye tapesty needle, metal or plastic, approximately 2 inches long
  • Small scissors
  • Optional: bring a small bottle or object to loop over

This class is open to the public and available to six students. Join us!
