Looking to unleash your creativity with a hands-on crafting experience? Join our tufting class in Leeds and learn the art of rug-making in a fun and informative workshop. You'll be guided through the entire tufting process and create your very own handmade mini rug.

In this workshop, you'll learn how to use a tufting gun, trim and finish your masterpiece, and walk away with your own personalised mini rug. Don't worry if you're new to tufting – our friendly and experienced host from Huffletuft will be by your side, ensuring you feel comfortable and confident throughout the class.

During the session, all the materials and equipment you need will be provided at no extra charge. You'll have everything at your fingertips to bring your rug to life.

Handling the tufting gun can feel daunting at first, but rest assured that our tufting class is suitable for all skill levels. Whether you're a beginner or have previous experience, you'll find our workshop engaging and enjoyable.

At the end of the workshop, you'll leave with your finished mini rug, a reminder of the skills you've acquired and the memories you've made.

We’re a Leeds-based studio offering rug tufting workshops and commissions. Coming from a background completely unrelated to crafts, we discovered our passion for tufting and established Huffletuft in 2022. Rug tufting is a fun and incredibly rewarding craft, and we wanted to provide a space where anyone could come to experience it. Many of our customers have told us they find it to be very therapeutic and a great stress reliever – and the best part is, you get to take home your own handmade rug at the end!

We love teaching others and seeing all the beautiful rugs you create in our studio. Tufting is a highly versatile art, and you can make a wide variety of items at our workshop, from small accessories to large decorative pieces.

Please note that for group bookings, you can book different items for the same session – just go to the different item pages and choose the same start time, then book the items separately.

Anyway, that’s enough about us – come and book your workshop now!

Alex was great! We found the venue easily and were well catered for throughout the session. Alex took good care of our group of 6, clearly demonstrating and showing us how to tuft, then assisting and advising as we did it ourselves. Materials and equipment were great, and we all love our mini rugs!

Thanks for the kind words! Very glad to hear you enjoyed your session :)

We had the best time rug tufting! The instructor gave clear instructions and was on hand to help. We picked it up pretty quickly over the 3 hours and it's an excellent chill activity that you can do whilst chatting. Plus, you get to go home immediately with your finished product! Would definitely recommend and go again.
