Punch Needle Embroidery Workshop


Upcoming class sessions:

  • Sunday, August 19, 2018 (11:00 am-1:00 pm)

  • Wednesday, September 19, 2018 (6:00-8:00 pm)

Class fee: $49

Learn to punch like a pro!

Join us to take a modern approach to the traditional technique of punch needle embroidery or rug hooking. The needle punching method results in beautifully textured finished pieces that can be turned into wall hangings, rugs, pillows, bags, and more. This is a super satisfying fiber art that is fairly quick and easy, so it's great for beginners!

In this workshop you'll practice the punch while you explore color and texture on an abstract geometric pattern to create your finished piece. We'll discuss different types of punch tools, fabrics, and fibers that can be used and troubleshoot common issues.

All materials and supplies will be provided.  The toolkit is included in the class fee, a 7" non-slip hoop and an adjustable loop length punch needle tool, so you can keep the punching party going when you get home.
