About this experience

Spend a day learning the art of rug tufting! Create a small one-of-a-kind rug or wall hanging from rug yarn using an electric tufting machine. Almost like drawing, the machine rapidly pokes yarn through a backing cloth, allowing you to create any type of design with a variety of yarn colors to choose from. 


In this 5 hour class, you will:



  • Gain insight into the fundamental techniques of operating a tufting machine.

  • Experience the joy and simplicity of rug tufting.

  • Get hands-on help from a tufting pro!

  • Receive finishing instructions on how to cut, glue, and finish your tufted piece.


You will leave class having created your own rug or wall hanging, approximately 2’x2’. As always, all materials will be provided, and all skill levels are welcome!
