January Program: Yarn Bombing

 

Monday, January 25, 2016

 

5:30 p.m. - Mini Workshop

6:45 p.m. - January Program

The Point (address listed above)

 

DAFA member Carrie Noess will start the evening with a mini workshop demonstrating Needle Lace. This type of lace is created using a needle and thread to stitch up hundreds of small stitches to form the lace itself. In its purest form, the only equipment and materials used are a needle, thread and scissors.

 

The January program will follow with Sally Ackerman presenting Yarn Bombing and Other Fun Yarnings. Sally will explain this exuberant effort to cover public spaces with knitted and crocheted embellishments. Yarn Bombing is now a worldwide art practice that began in Austin. Sally has organized a local group of enthusiasts who have embellished the Klyde Warren Park and the Dallas Heritage Village. She will show their work and discuss the process of yarn bombing.
