Event description
A beginners workshop learning the technique of punch needle embroidery - a tactile, rhythmic, meditative craft!

About this Event

Needle punching or punch needling, is a craft which involves using a hollow needle to push wool through fabric forming a series of loops. The density of the loops keeps the wool in place meaning there is no need for knots or glue. It’s a modern take on a traditional craft which was originally centred around making rugs. Now the technique is used to make a whole range of different textile items including wall hangings, cushion covers and bags.

The workshop is great for beginners as all the fabric stretching and frame making will be done for you so you can get on and punch your very own wall hanging. You can choose from one of Sara’s designs or come with an idea of your own – nothing too detailed. All materials will be included and there will be wool available for you to take away and finish your project. Feel free to bring your own wool stash if there’s something you would particularly like to use. Wool needs to be thick, chunky, bulky or aran to fit in the needle! As one in a small group you will have lots of Sara's time and attention to make it just right ready to hang up, pride of place at home.

Accessibility

Studio Cotton is located on the third floor of 48 Corn Street. Unfortunately the lift only reaches the second floor, and so the studio itself is accessed by a flight of stairs.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Studio Cotton is located in the centre of Bristol and served by most public transport routes. Parking on the other hand is a little trickier.There is limited Pay & Display parking available. The closest multi-story car parks are Queen Charlotte Street and The Galleries Shopping Centre, at the time of writing The Galleries Shopping Centre offers affordable parking after 5pm, but do check this before you make your journey.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

If you have any questions please email wholepunching@gmail.com

What's the refund policy?

I'm afraid I do not accept refunds for this event but if you are unable to attend the ticket can be redeemed by another person.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
