Modern punch needle has grown from the forgotten art of rug hooking to become one of the most popular textile crafts. Quicker than embroidery and easy to learn, this technique allows you to paint with yarn on a ready to display frame.
In this workshop, you will learn how to punch needle making your own textile artwork. Select from one of our four Mid-Century Collection designs including:
Each design can be customised with your own colours or you can choose to follow the suggested colour palette. Or you can let your imagination run wild and create your own unique design!
In this three-hour workshop, Anna will show you all the tips and tricks for producing beautiful punch needle work and share examples of a range of different styles and artists from around the world for inspiration. Learn about how you can use punch needle to make homewares, gifts and more. Once you start, you will be hooked!
At the end of the class, you will take home your textile artwork (30cm x 25cm) as well as your complete punch needle kit including:
The Oxford #10 Fine needle, in a cloth storage bag
Punch Needle for Beginners 12-page instruction booklet
Selection of Australian merino yarn to complete your artwork
Additional Monks Cloth to start a new project you get home!
