This class is run by the incredible textile artist - Pinky Wittingslow Punch Needle embroidery is a trending creative activity where you can create 3D textured artwork. Instead of stitching through the fabric, punch needle pushes thread or yarn into the fabric, while keeping the needle on the surface. You will learn a variety of stitches to create various effects in your project. You will receive a kit which includes a punch needle, monk's cloth and a variety of threads to create your artwork. The result of punch needle embroidering is a highly textured design made of loops. Punch needle takes some practice to get the best results. But after finding the right movements and rhythm, it goes quickly so you can fill a large area in no time at all. The rhythmical and repetition of the stitches make it a very relaxing and meditative activity A punch needle tool has a metal tip with a hole through it, much like a regular needle. But this needle has a channel through which the thread or yarn runs. Punch needle tools also have a handle that makes it easy to grip as you work. Monk's cloth is the most common fabric for punch needle. This even weave fabric comes in different varieties, and although some are easier to work with, any type will work. Linen and burlap also work, but the size of the fabric weave should match up with the needle and thread size. . Come along and learn all about the tools, techniques and materials in this class
