Punch Needle Geometric Biscornu, Jan 14-Feb 11


7 in stock

This “punch needle prompt” style class dives in to two ways to make and use punch needle that Laura is excited to explore with students.  One is to make a punch needle project that is geometric with symmetry using Chinle-style colorways (finished size approx 17×17 inches) and the second is to take that piece and turn it into a scaled-up version of a biscornu that could be a pillow for footstool.  Recommended gear for students is an 18×18 inch gripper strip frame, Oxford fine punches size 13 and 14, and a bent scissors.  An image of a pin cushion-sized biscornu is included in the gallery as reference for this unique shape.

This Zoom class meets on Sunday afternoons, 10am to noon Central, January 14, 21, 28, and Feb 4 and 11.

Our sessions will be recorded and made available for a month after our final session to registrants of the class.

Class Kit Includes:

  • 24×24 inch monk’s cloth with design
  • Colorful wool yarn from our sheep

If you need to have the kit shipped to you, please add shipping in the checkout process.

If you would like to turn this piece into a biscornu, you will need:

  • A harmoniously colored piece of upholstery fabric (shown is an example Laura will be using for hers).
  • Upholstery thread and a long needle (hoping our tatting needles will work, but we may have to improvise)
  • 2 sturdy buttons in a harmonious color, or large beads can work
  • Tapestry needle
  • Filler for the pillow–fiber fill could work or we can explore more options in class

With the purchase of this ticket, I’ll send you an email with the Zoom invite. Be sure to use the email address in the checkout that you would like me to use for sending you this link.
