Michelle Bishop, founder of Harlem Needle Arts–an institute established to introduce the various mediums relating to fiber to the Harlem community, and to preserve and promote fiber, needle arts and artisans throughout the African Diaspora–has established a partnership with the Museum of the City of New York to conduct a series of workshops called Threads. The event will take place on July 9th at 3:00 p.m.
She is looking for volunteers to teach basic to advanced knitting to participants. Please email her at email@example.com with the following information:
- The number of years you have been knitting
- Your teaching experience
- Other needle art skills
You'll be notified by email, if you are selected to participate.
Upon completion of your volunteer hours, Harlem Needle Arts will provide you with a letter specifying the number of hours toward certification or general volunteer effort. It would be a wonderful thing to introduce more people in our community to these arts, spreading the peace and creative effort.
I will be there teaching intermediate and advanced techniques. I will also be holding an assistance clinic (yes, the doctor is in, baby) for folks whose project is incomplete because of a technical difficulty. I will accept only one project per person or family. Please bring paper and a pencil in case you have to write anything down. (don't frown–how else are you gonna remember?). So, shake out that sweater with the uneven neckline or pieces you don't know how to sew together and come on down!
