Punch Needle Basics - Saturday November 23rd, 1-4pm
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. And ever since a few superstar artists got their hands on an Amy Oxford punch needle, this contemporary take on rug hooking has exploded. Just take a quick look on Pinterest at all the 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 too.
Join Watson & Lou co-owner Anna Eidt for an afternoon of punching. Choose from several designs, or make your own and create your very first punch needle piece.
This workshop provides all materials including:
A #10 Oxford punch needle
One square of monk’s cloth
A reusable recycled plastic 10" no-slip hoop (great for making trivets, small cushions, round pouches, or small wall hangings)
Plenty of yarn in a variety of colours.
