Punch Hooking: an Introduction
Legacy Studio – January 6, 2018

Wondering what’s the buzz about punch hooking?  Try this easy-to-learn skill for a day.  Punch hooking uses yarn and cloth strips, producing a rich surface of loops, similar to traditional rug hooking. It is a forgiving craft and will give you skills to create any pattern or design in fibre. You will need a punch-hook, frame or no-slip hoop, yarns and the Monks Cloth backing that I will provide. All materials and tools will be available for sale from Legacy Studio or from the teacher. Bring a bag of your leftover yarn to use, an idea for a simple design suitable for a 14” round chair pad, scissors and a Sharpie. I will have some templates and patterns if you are stuck for design ideas. Cloth strips (#6 to #8 cut) can be used, and I will have some for you to try. You will create your own design.  The photos shown are the work of the teacher.

Cost: $75 per student, 8 maximum, 5 minimum
