Learning punch needle has never been easier!
Punch Needle Rug Hooking is a traditional North American craft that is having an exciting, modern resurgence! Traditionally used for making heirloom rugs for the home, this technique is now being applied in new and innovative ways across art, craft, décor and fashion.
In this course we will cover everything you need to begin your punch needle journey including the difference in tools and materials, golden rules of punching, types of stitches, punching techniques and how to finish your piece. You'll also get specific troubleshooting tips, PDF downloads with additional tips and information, and bonus patterns to continue practicing and applying your skills after the course.
As a new puncher, I found it time consuming to sift through information and videos online and difficult to find an experienced teacher to learn from in person. Having a clear, easy to follow online course from a skilled instructor would have been extremely helpful in speeding up my practice and progression, and would have saved me months of trial and error, misinformation and money spent on supplies. So after completing my training at The Oxford Rug Hooking School in Vermont in 2019, I created this program –just for you!
Punch Needle is relaxing and meditative craft, can be done with relatively few tools, minimal space and little mess, and provides endless opportunities for creativity and self-expression. For many people, punch needle has become a passionate hobby, or even a side business! Through this course, I want to provide you the skills to create beautiful punch needle work that will last a lifetime, and the confidence to take punch needle in any direction that you can imagine.
I'm so excited to get you started on your punch needle journey, and can’t wait to see what you create!
