Come learn this quick and easy technique for producing woolen rugs by hand. Punch Needle Rug Making mimics my own process of hand tufting without all the infrastructure.

A simple hand-held tool, a backing cloth stretched tight onto a frame and some hand dyed wool, is all you need to catch the bug. I call it rug making for the modern maker. It is simple, fast and addictive.

A few years ago I traveled to the USA to where I met and learned punch needle rug making from Amy Oxford herself, and I have not looked back since.

I know its simple because I recently completed an artist in residency at a local primary school teaching 11 year old children' this technique.

Please bring a pair of scissors and a contribution for our healthy communal lunch. Morning tea provided.
