GREENPOINT WORKSHOP: Punch Needle 101 - Halloween Style!
Get ready for your newest craft addiction-- and for some fall fun! Learn beginner punch needle techniques as you design and make your own spooky wall hangings in this fun and relaxing 2.5-hour workshop. Total newbies welcome!
In this class you'll learn:
- How to thread and punch with an Oxford Punch Needle, the gold standard tool for the craft
- How to select the right yarn for your project
- How to work with monks cloth
- How to create different textures
- How to apply traditional techniques to create a modern wall hanging
You'll leave with a small wall hanging (approximately 7") and the know-how to create more pieces on your own! The skills learned can also be used to make pillows, rugs, and more! We'll have a few fun fall & Halloween designs to choose from, or you're welcome to create your own. And no, you don't have to stick to the Halloween theme if you don't want to! :)
Registration includes all materials necessary to make a small wall hanging, including an Oxford Punch Needle ($39 value), monks cloth, a Morgan No-Slip Hoop, and yarn.
Note: If you would like to bring a little of your own yarn, especially if you have colors you know you want to use in your piece, go for it! Worsted and bulky yarns work best for this project. We will provide enough yarn for everyone, but if you have anything special you want to incorporate, feel free to bring it along! You're also welcome to browse our in-store yarn selection; students will receive a 10% discount for any purchases made the day of class.
