Custom Carpet with a Tufting Gun for Beginners

Sunday, September 5, 2021 - 10:00am to 4:30pm

 

 

Tufting is a process by which custom carpets can be made. The artist sketches a pattern on a cloth, then uses a tufting gun to inject the yarn into the cloth. During this session participants will learn hands-on how to tuft their own simple design. Each participant will be assigned the use of tufting gun and frame, all materials will be provided to create a rug approximately 20' x24". Over the two sessions participants will create a carpet of their own design which they can take home.

PLEASE NOTE: This class has 2 sessions: Sunday 10am-4:30pm, and then Tuesday 6-7:30pm to complete the rug.

 

This class is limited to FOUR participants to allow for social distancing.

The finished result looks like this.
