Punch Needle Class with Duygu Turgut Gökpinar
We are so happy to welcome back Duygu Turgut Gökpinar to Loop in September!
We have two workshops! The morning one uses the regular punch needle for creating work that has a thicker and chunkier appearance.
The afternoon workshops will use a finer punch needle for more intricate work and would be great for anyone who has used a punch needle before or would like to try some finer more embroidery style work.
