PUNCH NEEDLE & TAPAS WORKSHOP
Join us for a fun and creative night at The Tramsheds. Learn the art of Punch Needle and create your own fibre artwork while you also enjoy a glass of wine and Tapas from Bodega 1904.
Punch needle brings together the best of embroidery and rug hooking in a fun and efficient way. Absolutely no experience is necessary, this technique is easy to learn and quicker to finish than embroidery – many people have likened it to painting with yarn.
What you will learn:
– How to stretch fabric onto a hoop,
– How to transfer a design to your fabric,
– How to thread & how to use a punch needle to complete your chosen design.
We will have a selection of designs and corresponding yarns for you to choose from so that you will walk away with a crafty creation that you are proud to say is “made by me”
Time: 6pm – 9pm
Venue: Artisan Lane, The Tramsheds
1 Dalgal Way, Forrest Lodge
What you get: Yours to keep is #10 Regular Oxford Punch Needle, a Morgan 7″ non-slip embroidery hoop, a piece of Monks cloth that you will use to create your punch needle masterpiece and all the wool you need to complete your piece.
Bodega 1904 will serve you a glass of wine and Tapas. Participants will be able to purchase additional drinks and menu items from Bodega 1904 throughout the workshop.
Amy Oxford Punch Needles are without a doubt the best Punch Needles available today, they are hand crafted from maple wood and stainless steel and come with a lifetime guarantee valued at $50.00 they will be a lovely addition to any crafter’s tool kit.
Morgan No-Slip Embroidery Hoops have a unique patented feature, a tongue and groove configuration which holds your fabric securely. No-slip means no-slip, there is no movement of your works until it is removed from the ring – valued at $20.00.
We believe craft is as much about creativity as it is about connection, in our workshops you have the opportunity to meet new friends, share a few stories, laugh with each other and simply enjoy some time out for yourself.
