Spend a couple of fun hours punching up a mini piece of textile art. In this workshop we will cover how to transfer your pattern to your weaver’s cloth and how to thread your needle. You will start punching your piece right away and by the time the end of the workshop you will feel comfortable going home to finish your piece. With free admission to the festival Saturday and Sunday please visit my booth to show me what you have accomplished! We will also look at a variety of finishing techniques…tiny pillows, mounted on recycled or antique pieces, frames etc. Please note that this is NOT punching rugs with yarns and the Oxford punch needle on monks cloth it is miniature punch needle done with needle and thread on weavers cloth.
