Explore the art of punch needle in this beginner's punch needling workshop where you will create your own Australian native work of art!

Punch needle brings together the best of embroidery and rug hooking in a fun and efficient way and is the most fun you can have with a ball of yarn! The techniques are easy to learn and once mastered you will be able to create amazing works of fibre art. In this class, you can choose to create one of our native birds or try one of our native florals.

You can choose to create one of the below designs when booking for the workshop (see images for reference):

  • Banksia
  • Waratah
  • Wattle
  • Cockatoo
  • Kookaburra
  • Rainbow Lorikeet
  • Your own design

You are also very welcome to create your own design or choose another of our many designs when you arrive at the workshop - let us know ahead of the class if you have any specific requests.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and experienced punchers who want to explore new techniques. We will take you through the steps to stretch your fabric onto your hoop, transfer your design onto your fabric, we will teach you all the essential punch needle tips and tricks and also show you how to create pile and sculpt this to create amazing three-dimensional effects.

If you're inspired to create more than one design, they are also available as DIY kits so you can complete the set once you've learnt all the tips and tricks!

At the end of the class, you will take home your own punch needle supplies to continue crafting at home as well as your own work of native Australian art created in the workshop!

I absolutely loved the punch needle workshop! It was the perfect place for me to be. Great company, exceptionally well prepared class with a wonderfully gifted teacher in a bright and generous space.
It meant 'time out', me time and learning a new crafty skill as well.
I had chosen the sulphur crested cockatoo as in the picture to the left and it turned out just like this.
If your life is going a bit too fast consider getting back in touch with yourself and do this workshop. The choice of designs is delightful, actually hard to choose just one.
