The class is inspired by and aligned with the current exhibition at the gallery, “Threaded: An Invitational Exhibit Showcasing Fiber and Textile Art,” co-curated by the Suffolk Art League and the Suffolk Art Gallery. The exhibit runs through June 3. The show features works by several local fiber-based artists, including Asa Jackson, Katherine Wassink and Maizelle Brown, as well as works that display needle felting techniques.

The 757 Creative Reuse Center is a nonprofit dedicated to reducing waste and improving access to affordable arts and craft supplies in Hampton Roads.
