Book the workshop the way you like it! You can choose the date of workshop, size of the rug you want to make and decide if you want only to tuft the rug or make the rug fully by yourself. 

Location: our studio Jönsaksentie 6, 01600 Vantaa. How to get there

Language:We speak English, Russian and basic Finnish

Rug size and time needed: you can choose between two sizes, up to 55 x 55 cm (takes around 4,5 hours to make) and 40 x 40 cm (around 3 hours to make). Dimensions refer to the working space, so you can make two rugs, for example.

Length: 1 day (includes only tufting, we finish the rug for you during the next week) or 2 days (includes tufting, glueing, shaving - you basically make the rug yourself with our instructions and take it home in the end). For the second day, it is around 3.5 hours for the 55 x 55 cm size and around 2 hours for 40 x 40 cm size.

How it goes:

During the 1st day of workshop we will teach you how to handle a tufting gun and after that you will use it to make the rug of your design. We will always be by your side, solving the problems and helping with difficult moments.

On the 2nd day, you will cut out the rug from the frame, glue the backing and shave the top of the rug and the sides. If you want, we can also do an introduction to carving which is an advanced technic of line work. In the end of the session you take your completed rug home! 

1 day workshop includes finishing of the rug by us (we will glue it and shave it). Your piece will be available for the pick-up from our studio in about 5-7 days. Shipping is also an option for a fee.


P.S. We will send you a letter to your email address with all the important information within 24 hours of buying the course from our email hello@anxiing.com. If you have not received such an email, please, contact us.

3. You come to our studio to the prepared frame and yarn. We instruct you on using the tufting gun and help you if any issues arise.

5. You receive your rug!

What is included in the workshop?

- We will prepare the yarn. But you can also pick the colors from available ones, if you want to change them.

- We will instruct you on how to make the rug

- We will assist you during the whole process. We will be around for the entire session if you need anything.

- If it is a 1 day workshop, we will complete your rug and it will be available for pick up at the studio. We can also ship it to you for an additional fee.

- All the tools and materials are included, alongside some drinks and snacks.

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.

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 to get to the studio?

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.

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.

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.
