Punch Needle Embroidery Workshop
Saturday, January 5, 2019
1:00 - 3:00 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 work on an abstract swirl pattern designed for this class. Explore the various texture options 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.
