Punch Needle Basics & A Wee Bit More

Tuesday, December 5, Wednesday, December 6, & Thursday, December 14, 2017

9am - 12pm all three days

Instructor: Cindy Sturdevant

$105 WGGC members + $10 materials fee* / $130 non-members + $10 materials fee*

Level: Beginners – Class Limit: 8

In this class you will learn the basic techniques of punch needle, including dimensional punching. You will create an original design and color plan for that design. You will add further interest to your design by adding contrasting fabric background layers and/or embellishing with beaded, braided, lace, or piping trims of your choosing or design. You will learn a simple beaded trim technique. Hopefully, you will leave class with a work suitable for framing or a functional piece, such as a coaster or appliqué.

Please note: Depending upon your design and plan for finishing your peice, some time outside class may be required to find materials, frames, or other objects to which you might attach your piece.

Let's get creative!
