Punch Needle Rug Hooking (Apr 2024)

April 6

Punch Needle Rug Hooking

Saturday
April 6, 2024

10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Instructor: Gina Angell

In this workshop, you will learn how to create a 10”- 12” circular design using hand-dyed wool rug yarn, applied with a punch needle tool to a fabric foundation.

Dating back to the 1800’s, this style of rug hooking has been experiencing a resurgence in popularity. It’s an easy technique to learn and the creative possibilities are endless!

The materials fee covers the cost of all supplies needed to complete your piece. Please feel free to bring yarns of your own to use or share. If time allows, we will also explore the use of both cotton and wool fabric strips in our creations.

Students will come away from this class with the working knowledge to further pursue this art form.

Fee: $80.00 (plus $40.00 materials fee paid directly to the instructor on the day of the class)
