About Tufting

It is my first time tufting. What can I expect?


First of all welcome to the colourful world of tufting! You don’t need any experience prior to our workshops, they are especially designed for beginners/ people who have never done it before. All you need is the enthusiasm to try something new! We will take you through the basics of tufting and give you all you need in order to create your own rug!

I’m not good at drawing. Can I still make a rug?


Absolutely! You will be submitting the design of your choice at least two days prior to the workshop. Your design will be drawn on the canvas and ready at your workspace for the beginning of the workshop. Once we teach you the basics of tufting you will see how easy and fun it is to tuft!

Example: If you want to attend the workshop on 5th July, you will need to secure your place and make your payment and send us the drawing of your choice by 3rd July.

Can I make a rug of any design I want?


Yes, you can. However we strongly recommend that you should keep the details of the drawing of your choice to a minimum. Thin lines and small figures/ writing are the details that are harder to work on and it  might be hard to make them appear the way you want them to appear on your rug.

Once you submit the design you want to turn into a rug, we will review it and make suggestions if it needs to be simplified.

How can I use the rug I made at the workshop?


You can use it as a rug, an art piece to hand on your wall, on the table or your sofa to add some colour and texture to your home and of course… a post for your instagram!

How long does it take to make a rug?


This depends on the amount of detail you want to include in your rug and how fast you work. Our tutors will guide you throughout the workshop and make sure you will be able to finish your rug on time for the end of the workshop.

Will I be able to take my rug home at the end of the workshop?


Yes! Once you finish tufting, you will cut it off, glue on the backing fabric and your rug will be ready!

Sometimes accidents happen, this is why we will do our best to fix the problem on your rug. If your rug needs to be fixed, please allow a week before collecting it.

I'm experienced at tufting! Can I come in and use the space too?


Of course! We will provide you with all you need to work on your piece and you will have access to all the facilities of the studio. This session is available to experienced tufters at an hourly charge of £50 and slots are subject to availability.
