Needlepoint Canvas Painting WorkshopsLearn how to paint-to-point your needlepoint canvas
Think of needlepoint as something much more exciting and creative than what you saw on your grandmother’s dining room chairs. Let us teach you how to embellish a design and then transfer it onto needlepoint canvas. Immerse yourself in a new experience of the creative process of design, color, paint, brushes, needlepoint canvases, and wool.
Our workshops are organized for a hands-on experience and an excellent way to learn in a classroom environment. Best of all…we have all materials at the studio, and you will learn in a well-lit and comfortable environment.
