Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fluffiest of them all?
Jump onboard the world’s latest craft obsession. Easy to pick up and hard to put down, tufting is primarily used in rug making and can be applied to a plethora of projects, including pillows, art pieces, furniture, and clothing. The only limit is your imagination. In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn tufting fundamentals and come away with your own custom, one-of-a-kind mirror.
We’ll start with designing and planning our projects, then moving on to a quick run-down on various techniques, including hand-tufting and hooking, before moving on to machine tufting with AK-1 cut pile tufting guns. Investing in one of these bad boys (not to mention the rest of the setup) is an expensive purchase, so you’ll have the chance to practice and test one before pulling the trigger.
You’ll learn how to set up your frame for tufting, safe and proper use of a tufting gun, techniques for a professional finish, and some basic troubleshooting. Then it’s your turn. Spend the rest of the session tufting up a storm, bringing your creation to life. Once you’ve finished tufting, Spend the rest of the session tufting up a storm, bringing your creation to life. Once you’ve finished tufting, we’ll finish the session by gluing our pieces, fine-tuning our creations, tidying up edges, and trimming excess yarn. Please note that your pieces will be left on the frames to dry for 24 hours. Upon drying, we will glue your tufted pieces onto the mirrors and your creations will be ready to pick up approximately one week after the workshop.
*Please note that you’ll be able to select three yarn colours to work with and we’ll be in touch before the class with options. This workshop is strictly limited to 12 participants
