About The Event
Intro to Punch Needle Rug Hooking
Punch Needle Rug Hooking is a traditional North American craft that is having an exciting, modern resurgence! Traditionally used for making heirloom rugs for the home, this technique is now being applied in new and innovative ways across art, craft, décor and fashion. In this 4 hour workshop, you will learn all the ins and outs of punch needle rug hooking: stretching your monkscloth on a gripper frame, selecting your yarn, best practices for using your punch needle, troubleshooting, hemming and finishing your work -- along with a whole bunch of tips and tricks along the way. This is the perfect class for beginners, or those who have tried punch needle on their own but are looking for more in-depth guidance on technique. You'll come away from this class with a small coaster (mug rug!) in a design of your choice -- and the knowledge to create future pieces of any size!I
