Modern Punch Needle Pillow Workshop with Local Artist Daisy McClellan

March 09,2024

11:00 am - 01:00 pm

The Charleston Museum


Join local artist Daisy McClellan on March 9th from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm to learn the art of punch needle. Taking inspiration from The Art of Abstraction: Modernism in Quilting in the Historic Textiles Gallery, students will receive access to the exhibit prior to making their creations. You’ll take all that inspiration and create an abstract punch needle design to turn into the perfect throw pillow for your couch or bed.

Daisy will teach you everything you need to know about this traditional rug making technique while giving it a modern and playful twist. Participants will learn about the best supplies to get started, how to thread a punch needle, stretch a frame, draw your own design to fabric, how to punch, as well as tips and tricks for turning your piece into a pillow. This class includes the below materials needed during the workshop and are yours to take home with you:

#10 Regular Oxford Punch Needle
Premium wool rug yarn (in various colors)
Monk’s Cloth Backing Fabric
Morgan Non-Slip Hoop
Metal Snips
Water Soluble Marker
A guide to get you started on your punch needle journey
Registration required. $110 for Museum Members | $140 for Non-members.
