In this hands-on instructional class, participants will learn to use power tufting machines to create a rug or wall hanging. The 4-hour class will cover the basics of setting up a tufting frame with stretched primary cloth and threading and operating tufting machines. Instructions for how to cut, glue, and finish a tufted piece will also be provided.**
Participants will work on projects of their own design on a frame that can accommodate pieces 22 x 22 inches.
Frame, cloth, and yarn are included in the cost of the workshop (participants will take their work and frames home following the class). Tuft the World will provide tufting machines for use during the workshop, or participants may bring their own.
**Basic finishing guidance is provided during the workshop, should participants choose to finish their tufted rug at home. Finishing supplies (backing cloth, edging trim, adhesive, etc.) are not included as part of the workshop.
Space is limited to 12 participants!
