Punch Needle 101
Wednesday, February 8th @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$84
Punch needle is a fiber craft dating back to the 1880’s, but is experiencing a big resurgence in popularity with more modern motifs and applications. Existing somewhere between rug hooking and embroidery, punch needle involves punching a needle through fabric in a repetitive motion to create amazing designs with loops of yarn. It’s a fun and relaxing craft that can be turned into wall art, cushions, pillows, rugs, patches, purses… just about anything made with a textile! And with a great set of tools, even first timers will walk away with the confidence to continue and experiment on their own!
Supplies Needed: None. As part of this class, each student will receive a full punch needle kit that includes a reusable punch needle frame, monks cloth, yarn, and an Oxford Punch Needle (the best out there…these are $35 retail) to take home.
Instructor Bio: Becca Schillinger earned her BFA in drawing and painting from CCAC here in San Francisco, and was trained by drag queens in NYC on how to paint a fashion-week worthy face. Knitting is her zen craft practice and she skypes with her 93 year old grandmother for advice on projects constantly. Becca teaches many of our fiber art workshops in addition to knit and crochet, such as punch needle.
