Summer themed punch needle workshop
Come and learn punch needle and enjoy summer all at once!
In this course Heli Savila – a punch needle artist – is going to teach us all the basics about this craft. We will be using all sorts of summery materials like cotton, linen and to give it an extra summery feel we’ll be experimenting with raffia.
In this course you are going to make a wall hanging using an embroidery hoop. You can choose whether you would like to use an adjustable punch needle or the Oxford needle. Your needle of choice is yours to keep. All the materials are included and no previous experience is required.
We'll be using:
Embroidery hoop prepared with a special fabric for punch needle (d=22 cm)
A selection of yarns to give your work a summery vibe: cotton, linen, raffia
