Introduction to modern punch needle

Punch needle is coming to Kutomo!

We are having our first ever punch needle workshop on 22 May. In this workshop, Heli Savila – a punch needle artist – is going to teach us all the basics about this craft. She will give you insight about the materials and tools, where to get them and what are the possibilities. You will also hear her tips about composition, choosing colours and how to create your own unique projects.

During the course you will be making a punch needle project on a square frame.
