About the Event
Students will learn how to use the punch needle to make a small project that can be hung on a wall or used as a “mug rug.” The basic skill set gained will allow students to move on to larger projects like table runners, pillows, and rugs with confidence.
During the class, students will:
• transfer a simple pattern onto a cotton, monk’s cloth backing;
• prepare materials; and
• begin punching a mug rug or wall-hanging.
We’ll also discuss various ways you might want to finish your rug after all the punching is done.
Materials Fee = $25. Please bring scissors (preferably a small pair, e.g., for embroidery); pencil and paper or sketchbook; pencil and Sharpie.
All materials required will be available for the workshop, but punch needles, frames, and some additional materials will be offered for sale afterwards.
