Needle punch embroidery is an easy but attractive technique using yarn to create an impressive 3-dimensional look. In this class, you will learn all the basic needle punching skills and work on making your own hooped wall hanging.
It is a craft perfect for creating beautiful pillows, pictures, wall hangings, cotton bags and decorative cushions. You don’t need to have any prior experience of embroidery to do this class.
We will first look at all the tools needed for a needle punch embroidery project and teach you how to use and care for them. We will then move onto learning the technique and practising them. Finally, we will move on to create a punched embroidery of your own. We will help you choose the design and work through all the elements.
There will be lots of tips and hints along the way and copious amounts of tea and coffee on go too! We will end the day giving you some ideas and suggestions on how you can use needle punch embroidery in other projects.
