Punch Needle with Cynthia Popnoe-Hoad at Stiwdio 3

Red star on white ground


This course is designed for beginners who want to explore the basics of punch needle rug hooking. It is a fast and easy craft to learn. You’ll make a beautiful 8” mat that may be used as a trivet, wall hanging, or table top decoration. By doing this you’ll learn everything necessary to hook larger rugs.

The Oxford Punch Needle can be described as the “gold standard” in punch needle rug hooking. It was designed in 1995, by Amy Oxford, a well known rug hooker from Vermont, USA. Because of the design and functionality, the loops are created more evenly than using a traditional rug hook. It was also designed to be ergonomically friendly which means it is easier on your hands.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
