Very excited to introduce another fibre art revival workshop; needle punching (or also called rug hooking). With new easy to use tools, “needle punching” is back and taking the craft world by storm. A faster alternative to traditional rug hooks and wool strips, the modern needle puncher now works with fun colourways and contemporary patterns. Join Mollie Makes featured fibre artist, Stephanie Fradette, as she shows you how to “paint” with yarn to create a textured hoop.
You will be taught how to transfer your chosen design onto the backing, how to use the needle punch tool to create texture and finishing techniques. Students will be able to choose from a few patterns or you can design your own, the more contrasting the motif, the better! A wide selection of high-quality yarns will be available for you to experiment with. This class is for complete beginners as it’s a very easy and relaxing craft.
