Bunka Shishu

Bunka Shishu

Bunka Shishu, Japanese “Needle Punch” embroidery, uses rayon lily thread combined with specific stitching techniques to create lovely pieces of art. Students begin by stitching a small pictorial sampler and progress to kits depicting traditional Japanese scenes, flowers, animals, or people.

Classes are open to others who wish to complete their stitchery.
