Rug Hooking

 

Punch Needle Rug Hooking – CLASS FILLED!
Often described as ‘instant gratification”, punch needle is a fun and addictive method of rug hooking that is rapidly gaining in popularity! In this workshop, students will create a pretty punched trivet that can be used as a chair pad, wall hanging or to decorate a pillow or bag. With nearly 20 different patterns and a gorgeous array of mill-run and hand-dyed wool yarns to choose from, everyone will have the chance to make the design their own. We’ll cover topics such as design, colour planning, how to use a punch needle, plus special tricks and techniques and finishing- all the basics with the teacher helping you step-by-step. By the end of class most students should have  a solid enough foundation in punching to be confident in making larger rugs and other fabulous projects. Punch needles may be borrowed during class time and purchased after if students wish.
