PUNCH! Studio had its soft opening last week! Everyone from beginners to pros came together for an afternoon of punch needle rug hooking, soup and of course PUNCH!
Our workshop for the day was inspired by Valentines Day and we made “mug rugs” for our sweeties. We started with a brief history of rug hooking followed by a crash course in the basics of how to use the Oxford Punch Needle. Even students who declared "I'm not the least bit crafty!" had success finishing their projects proving that this style of rug hooking is fast, easy and fun!
Thanks to everyone who came out for my first class in my primped and cleaned up studio. It was great to be able to test drive the classroom, making sure there was plenty of room even with my giant ceramic kiln taking up one corner - (it will eventually move outside) and I loved sharing my excitement for this endlessly creative craft. I know it is just the beginning of many more creative gatherings to come.
