Rug hooking has been around for since the early 19th century. It’s a beautiful, endlessly versatile, and affordable way to cover your whole house in completely customized cozy textiles. But ever since a few superstar artists got their hands on an Amy Oxford punch needle, this more contemporary take on rug hooking has exploded! It’s a wonder Pinterest hasn’t crashed from all the impossibly beautiful, but simple designs for stools, cushions, wearables, and wall hangings.
We want you to revel in this easy and satisfying technique so you too can create stunning textiles for your home, family, and friends.
Join Watson & Lou co-owner Anna Eidt for an afternoon of happy punching. Choose from two designs and many colours to start (and maybe even finish) your very first work of punched wall art.
This workshop includes one #10 Amy Oxford punch needle valued at approximately $50 CAD and a starter kit including pre-stretched monk’s cloth on a wooden frame, and yarn.
