For the first time we are offering Kids Punch Needle Workshops during the next school holidays! There will be 4 dates to choose from. I ask that unless your child is accompanied by an adult that they are age 10 or over. Parents please join if you can! It's an amazing experience learning a new craft with your child!
Punch Needling is completely safe for children and quite easy to master. We'll be working on a simple design in a non slip hoop with a punch needle that is not sharp.
Dates to choose from:
Sunday September 24th at 10am
Wednesday September 27th at 1pm or 6pm
Sunday October 1st at 10am
Wednesday October 4th at 1pm or 6pm
What's Punch Needling?
Punch needling is referred to often as paintings with wool. The flexibility of this craft provides you with endless project options! Essentially you are stabbing at special fabric with a special needle (very therapeutic if you ask me!). As you punch you'll be creating stitches on one side of the fabric and loops on the other.
If you love fiber based crafts you will LOVE this. You can make textured wall hangings, Rugs, seat cushions, clothing, patches, mug rugs and so much more!
My favorite part about this craft is that it has basic rules but beyond that it's very freeing you don't need to continually acquire knowledge to make beautiful works of art like some other fiber arts.
This time you can either choose to patriciate only, or purchase a corresponding kit. If you participate you walk away with a finished piece, but no equipment
What will be in the Kit If I Purchase it?
This beginners kit is part of a revamp to my punch needle kit collection which has been long overdue!
a simple design (however you may choose your own)
5 Colours of 50gms of Rug Wool (plenty to complete your piece)
A medium Ergonomic Lavor Punch Needle (absolutely perfect with our EFFY Rug Wool)
A Piece of Monks Cloth
A Non - Slip Hoop for holding your fabric tight as a drum
In the Workshop I will teach you the basics of Punch Needling and we will discuss the variations of the craft and and go over finishing techniques.
