Join Arounna of the Toronto studio Bookhou to learn a rug-hooking technique using a punch needle. With this technique, you can make rugs, wall art, pillows, and more. Arounna will first take you through the design process and teach you how to create an image, then she will talk about materials and show you how to prepare the frame. You’ll get to design your own image or use one of the designs provided to make a textile wall hanging. You will also be given a kit that consists of an Oxford Punch Needle, wood frame pre-stretched with monks cloth, and yarn.

* If the workshop is sold out, make sure to subscribe in the box above and once the workshop comes back online you'll be the first to hear about it.

Arounna Khounnoraj is a Canadian artist and maker working in Toronto where she immigrated with her family from Laos at the age of four. While her education includes a master’s degree in fine arts in sculpture and ceramics, it was through subsequent artist residencies that she found her current focus in fiber arts. In 2002 she started Bookhou, a multi-disciplinary studio with her husband John Booth, where Arounna explores screen printing and a variety of textile techniques such as embroidery and punch needle.
