Discover the Art of Rug Tufting! 

 

Tufting is a form of rug making with a modern twist. With the aid of a power-assisted tufting machine you push yarn through a woven backing cloth at high speed, producing fluffy tactile textile pieces. It’s an instant gratification type of craft, which is a really satisfying to have a go at.  

While the tufting machine may look daunting at first, mastering the right pressure and angle sets you on your way to creating your own tufted artwork or home décor masterpiece.

What to Expect in Our Workshops!
