Students will learn everything they need to build their own tufting practice at home from fiber artist Meg Brunston. They will start with the basics of applying fabric to the frame, leading into designing and tufting a piece, and finishing the piece with backing cloth and commercial grade adhesive. They will receive tips and tricks to make tufting a smooth and easeful process.
Students have the option to tuft a design/shape they would like that fits in a 2×3-foot tufting frame. They can make a rug, wall hanging, pillowcases, coasters, etc. The options are endless!
