Workshop process

1. You come to the studio: your design is already traced on the canvas and we will select the yarn for you, but you can change it if you want.

2. We will teach you how to handle a tufting gun and you will practice for a bit.

3. After the practice you will start putting the yarn into the cloth, making your rug.

4. When the tufting is done, you will shave your rug, making it smooth!

5. If you want to glue and finish the rug yourself and take it with you straightaway, it can be done on a separate day. We will instruct you how to do that.

Otherwise, we will complete your rug in 5-7 days.

P.S. We will always be by your side, solving the problems and helping with difficult moments.

3. You start putting the yarn into the cloth, making your rug. In the end of the workshop, you will shave the rug.

4. If you want to glue and finish the rug yourself and take it with you straightaway, it can be done on a separate day. Otherwise, we will complete your rug in 5-7 days.

5. You receive your rug!

How difficult is this workshop?

The workshop is not difficult, but it takes around 20 minutes to understand the use of the tufting gun and around 30 more minutes to get a hang of it properly. After that it is a smooth ride!

Moreover, rugs are quite forgiving on the mistakes, so there is not need to stress about them.

If you get tired, you can always rest and get a cup of tee / coffee.

How many people are at the workshop?

At the moment the maximum number of people is 5, but we will host the workshop even for one person

How to prepare for the workshop?

1. Send us your preferable rug / rugs design / designs before coming to the workshop. Preferably, 2 days in advance, but on shorter notice may also work ( it is better to ask us about that).

Here are some guidelines on how to choose the design.

If you want to do free hand (draw the design yourself already at the studio), it is a good idea to mention the colors, so that we would have all the required ones on hand. We do have a stock, but maybe you need some specific ones.

Also tell us, if you want to finish a rug by yourself, or if you want us to do it for you.

And that is it!

How to pick a design of the rug?

You can always check our recommendations for the design here.

You can also just reach out to us with the design that you want to do and we will say, if it works or not and will help you to simplify it, if necessary.

Please, try sending us the design at least two days before the workshop. On shorter notice may also work ( it is better to ask us about that).

You can also draw the design yourself right at the workshop, but then it is a good idea to mention the colors that you want to use, so that we would have all the required ones on hand. We do have a stock, but maybe you need some specific ones.

What to take with to the workshop? Food, water, clothes?

1. On the day of the workshop it's best to go with comfy and casual clothes that can handle a little mess. If you wear long hair, bring something to put them away.

2. You can take spare footwear, since it is quite warm in the studio.

3. You may want to take a water bottle or some snacks - we have coffee, tea & some snacks available and microwave oven available. Anyway, there is a shopping center close nearby.

Otherwise, just take your good mood - we have everything else!

How dirty / loud is the process?

The tufting part is not loud, but if you want, you can bring ear protection, or we have it on the site.

Tufting part is a bit dusty, but it will end up on the floor, not on you.

Glueing / shaving part is not loud at all, but way more dusty, so be prepared for that.

What if I do not make the rug in time?

The time specified is the average one, it may take you a bit longer - we will wait for you for no additional price

Can I take the rug home straightaway?

Unfoturnately, the glue must stay on the rug overnight.

You can come on the next day to finish the rug yourself (it is included in the price) and take it home with you after that!

Can I cancel or modify my reservation?

Yes, you can cancel or modify your reservation (for example, transfer it to another person or move it to another date), but only 48 hours in advance. Otherwise, purchase is binding.
