Whether you are a beginning or experienced stitcher, the West offers a variety of class opportunities. Most teachers require students to bring a handpainted canvas or charted design to class.
Your teacher will assist you with thread and stitch choices for your designs.
Call the West for times and availability at 520.299.1044. All needlework classes are $10 per three-hour session.
Beginning Needlepoint: Learn many basic stitches including Basketweave and Continental to produce a project that may be framed, made into a pillow, or other finishing options.
Open Needlepoint: Bring your canvas, and we will help you with threads and stitches. This is a great way to experiment with your next “masterpiece” by getting help from experienced teachers and having fun time with others in the class.
Cartonnage: Third Friday each month, Maryse Robbins features a special, all-day (10am to 5pm) class on the cartonnage technique. Join Maryse as she shares her fabulous creations. Class fee is $50 per session — more information at the desk or by calling 520.299.1044.
