Punch needle technique (tuftaus neula in Finnish) is easy to learn and it's quick to get going with your first project. In my contemporary punch needle workshops I share my insights and artistic way of creating punch needle projects. During the 3 hour workshop you'll be creating a contemporary punch needle wall hanging that you can later pop on the wall at home and admire you accomplishment.
You can choose whether you would like to use the Oxford punch needle for the duration of the workshop or buy one for yourself to keep. You also have the opportunity to purchase the Oxford punch needle full set at the end of the workshop.
In this workshop we'll be working with the Oxford punch needle #9 fine. The #9 fine punch needles are for thinner, worsted weight yarns. It is possible to create detailed, smaller work and punch on a variety of fabrics like linen, wool and cotton.
Let yourself be inspired by the selection of different summery yarns (cotton, linen).
For a frame we'll use an embroidery hoop prepared with a special fabric – cotton & viscose mix.
