Introduction to Punch Needle Rug Hooking
Join designer and fibre artist Katie Stackhouse of Midnight Creative for a comprehensive introduction to punch needle rug hooking in this three part class.
Students will create a decorative tray insert while learning to use the Regular Oxford Punch Needle. The class will cover everything from fabrics, frames, and fibres, to punch needle techniques, and finishing.
Each student will receive an #10 Oxford Punch Needle, foundation cloth stretched on a simple wooden frame, a selection of rug yarn in an assortment of colors, an instructional guide, and a wooden tray for displaying the finished piece.
Week 1: Sunday, October 16 6PM-8PM
Students will be introduced to punch needle rug hooking, learn the basic technique, and begin punching their piece.
Week 2: Sunday, October 23 6PM-8PM
Students will continue working on their piece - we will troubleshoot any issues, and continue to build good punch needle habits and techniques.
Week 3: Sunday, November 13 6PM-8PM
After a three week break, when students will have time to complete their punch needle mat at home, we will meet again to learn how to finish a punch needle rug - including taming unruly loops, steaming and hemming.
Class cost is $189 and includes punch needle and all supplies to make a decorative tray.
