Beginners Learn to Punch Needle Half Day Workshop : 18/11/23
Come and learn how to Punch Needle on our new Punch Needle Workshop! Now very much in the limelight and enjoying a revival, Punch Needle is the latest craze...
Create wonderful carpet-like cushions and wallhangings by simply pushing a threaded Punch Needle tool through some special fabric, which holds your stitches in place through tension. Clever stuff! :-) Once you get the hang of it, Punch Needle is faster than sewing, and is very forgiving too. It's easy to create fabulously 'naive' designs, which look like little carpet-y works of art!
On this half day workshop, you will learn how to tension your 'Monks Cloth' fabric; thread and use your special Punch Needle tool; sketch out a pattern, and use all sorts of different yarns to create a simple Punch Needle design in a hoop.
Included are :
- 6" Embroidery hoop
- 5mm Wooden Punch Needle Tool
- Piece of 'Monks Cloth' (special fabric for Punch Needle) to work on to
- A selection of yarns
- Tea & Coffee and biscuits
- 10% off in the shop on the day of your workshop
NB: Maximum students will be 7 on this course.
Punch Needle Course runs 10am - 1pm
Taught by Gillian Harris, who is the author of 3 x Felting Books, plus latest "Easy Stuff to Make with Fluff" and owns and runs The Gilliangladrag Fluff-a-torium in Dorking.
