Punch Needle Mola

This is an excellent class for parents/grandparents and children to sign up for together!

Students will explore Folk Art Traditions from Indigenous Peoples in North and South America. Examples of Folk Art traditions will be available from around the world, for students to touch and explore.

Students will understand that the Kuna People of Panama were able to adapt a centuries old tattoo tradition to a formalized needlework tradition in an effort to keep this part of their heritage intact. Students will then make their own Mola mat, using hand dyed yarn and a punch needle.

Dye lesson, wool study, color wheel, color planning, Indigenous Folk Art, and Mola making are incorporated into this curriculum-based unit of study.

Refund / Class credit policy: Because workshops only meet for a very limited number of times we cannot offer refunds, however, we can offer a class credit toward another workshop of the same value. You must notify the instructor or send an email prior to the second session to qualify.
