List of my favourite summer bags is written below.
This workshop is created to keep our summer tones and activities in mind. We'll be making patches that we can sew onto our bags.  We are not punching directly on the bags, this means the material of the bag can be almost anything that allows as to sew into it with a regular needle.
If you are a beginner you will most likely finish a patch that is about 15-20cm in diameter (or couple of smaller ones). And if you are an experienced puncher, you will probably finish a 25cm diameter patch (or couple of smaller ones).
With our punch needle work and technique we'll be focusing on: gradient shading & counting stitches.
Oxford punch needle is borrowed for the duration of the workshop. You also have the opportunity to purchase the full set at the end of the workshop. 

For a refreshment we'll me drinking ice-matcha. Or warm teas if the weather is cold and gloomy :)

Anything from home – adding punched patches is a great way to give new character to an old bag.

"It was a really interesting, peaceful, and fun workshop. I am glad to learn how to do punch needle and have a nice finished piece in the end. In addition to Heli's amazing teaching, tasting tea was a very nice experience."
"I loved the workshop. I can’t even decided what my favorite thing was. The collage exercise at the beginning really opened my eyes to the intuitiveness of the art and working with the yarn was both relaxing and rewarding. 
I would definitely recommend the workshop to all my friends!"
