Join us for Looping 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: 

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