Imagine you can draw with yarn! In this workshop students will be introduced to the American craft of punchneedle embroidery, a cousin of rug-hooking! Punchneedle embroidery is different from traditional embroidery in that the “needle” is more similar to an awl and there are no knots! Fragile, fun, and fast-paced, punchneedle embroidery is a relaxing way to create rugs, pillows, and wall decor. Students will be introduced to the craft of punchneedle embroidery complete an embroidered hoop that they can hang for decoration or gift.
