Punch needle embroidery is a traditional rug hooking technique that has taken the textile craft world by storm! The needle punching method results in beautifully textured finished pieces that can be turned into cushions, statement necklaces, small purses and more. This is a super satisfying craft that is quick and easy, so it’s excellent for beginners.
We have miniaturised rugs into statement brooches you can make yourself. Treat yourself and your crafty friends to a few hours of creative therapy and conversations in our cozy studio over tea and homemade light bites.
In this workshop, we will be using fine embroidery floss instead of chunky wool and we’ll be punching hand-drawn designs onto handwoven cotton stretched on a mini wooden embroidery hoop! This is excellent for someone who want to get an idea on how to get started and does not require expensive equipments or complicated tools.
You’ll learn how to design, punch and turn your mini masterpieces into a statement brooch. At the end of the class, you’ll bring home a Portuguese-made Lavor punch needle kit that comes with needles in 3 sizes for more punching adventures, a mini embroidery hoop and your personalised punch needle brooch! All other materials to complete the project will be provided too.
