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, yarn, and a cotton tote to carry your work home with you.
All materials are included in the workshop and light snacks and refreshments will be served. You’ll also receive a 15% off discount at the Poketo shop in the lobby as well as all future workshops.
