Get to grips with the basics of gun tufting and make your own rug.

Aimed at beginners, this intimate workshop is an introduction to the art of electric gun tufting. Learning the basic tufting techniques, this is a chance to experiment with a tufting gun and create your own contemporary rug sample.

Rugs created during this workshop will be approximately 50x50cm and will be inspired by one of the contemporary rugs in Dovecot’s archive.

Liquid latex is necessary to finish your piece, so please contact info@dovecotstudios.com if you have allergies to this material.

There are only two spaces available on this workshop. The tickets may be booked as a pair, or individually. For interest in future Rug Tufting Experience Days please contact us.
