What is rug tufting?

A quick Google search will have you drooling over the amazing art people have created with rug tufting machines.

The machines follow the same principle as punch needling. A loop or cut loop is created on one side of the fabric while the backside is a flat stitch. The machine works fast so in minutes you've created a patch of flat stitches on the back and fluffy loops or cut loops on the front!

What we'll learn:

  • Introduction to the AK-II loop pile machine and AK-I cut pile tufting machines.
  • A brief introduction to the KDR-I and KDR-II
  • An introduction on how to maintain & service your gun
  • Next, we'll look at stretching your fabric on a carpet tack frame. - creating a funky & simple carpet design - transferring your design to tufting cloth.
  • At this point you'll be off to the races and start tufting your design with either a AK-I cut pile tufting machine.
  • You will use either acrylic yarn or Rug Yarn to complete your design. Please note to make your Rug with Rug Yarn the cost is $200 dollars extra. This is yarn hand-dyed by me. _ Please note that Rug Yarn Spots will close 2 weeks before the workshop! This is so we ensure time to get it prepared for you.
  • Then we will learn how to add a secondary backing and bind your rug.
  • By the end of the day you will have a tufted rug and heaps of knowledge.

Tea and coffee will be available throughout the afternoons as well as nibbles to fuel or creativity!

What will be supplied with your workshop fee:

  • Use of the tufting guns
  • Use of a 28"x 28" carpet tack work Station
