If you haven’t seen punch needling / a video of punch needling / someone punch needling … are you even on Instagram?! Along with embroidery, weaving and textile art, punch needling is making a huge come back in the art and craft world as we speak!
You may be asking, why is this retro fibre mastery having a moment? Well, we think it has something to do with the INSTANT gratification of this majorly additive craft form, as well as the to die for texture you get when punching a needle threaded with fibre up and down through a piece of monk cloth. It is super quick, super fun and to be frank, we can’t get enough. If you want in, come along to our PUNCH NEEDLE WORKSHOP and see what all the talk is about...
The Windsor Workshop is located on level 1 of 115 Chapel Street, Windsor. Windsor train station is a 4 minute walk, or jump off at Duke Street stop on Tram 78. All day parking is available behind Paint Spot, Windsor (opposite the station) for around $7/day.

It is likely you will be photographed at the workshop, so please let us know if you do not want to be published.
