Tufting 101 is where we get you started on your tufting journey and show you the tips, things to look out for and best practices that make our workmanship different from the rest. This workshop is also the prerequisite for booking open studio slots. After attending tufting 101, you will automatically be entitled to book to our open studio slots to make your own tufted projects independently and enjoy a 15% discount on rug yarn and tufting supplies.
This is an intensive full day workshop (9.30am-5.30pm) with a 1 hour lunch break (lunch not included in workshop fees), we are unable to split the workshop into separate days.

NOTE Please get ready a few beginner-friendly designs before the class so we can review them in class. If no designs were prepared, you will work on our default (abstract) design.
All tools and materials are provided for the workshop. We will also share where you can get supplies and how to set up for tufting at home. If minimum class size of 3 is not met, we will contact you to reschedule or refund your fees. Each workshop is limited to 6 participants to ensure we give every individual enough tuft loving.
