Tufting is a type of textile weaving used to make things like hats, gloves, coasters, and — you guessed it — rugs! The process uses a canvas stretched over a frame, a tufting gun, and yarn to create any number of Insta-worthy artistries. In this class, you will be learning how to create small- to medium-sized rugs of your very own!

From instructor Neeka Jackson: “I know what it’s like to learn something for the first time, so I like to specialize in making sure that everyone that I’m teaching is going to have a fun, stress-free, easy-going experience, no matter the skill level. If you’ve never tufted before — perfect, I’ll show you the ropes (or yarns, I suppose). If this isn’t your first tufting rodeo and you need your own gun and frame + workspace to tuft, I’ve got you as well.”
