Take a step into a world of creativity with this tufting workshop in Liverpool. Discover the artistic process of rug tufting in the cosy and inviting artist’s studio nestled within the Baltic Triangle. Draw motivation from The Royal Standard artists around you and immerse yourself in local culture by exploring surrounding venues, cafes and restaurants.

No experience is necessary for this rug tufting class! Even if you've never seen a tufting gun before, the experienced and supportive teachers from Ell-Squared are on hand to share their top tips. This Liverpool activity could be the perfect way to fill your day with creativity for a birthday party or team activity.

Two friendly faces will be guiding you through this colourful journey into the world of rug making. Working as a team to help you feel confident going from complete beginner to hands-on rug making with all the tools and materials provided.

There is allocated time for planning your designs; utilise projectors for precision or draw directly onto your canvas if that suits your creative style better. Your tutors are there to assist in bringing your dream rug to life with their collection of past work examples and vibrant imaginations.

You'll craft a 90cm x 90cm tufted wonder that will be backed, carved, and ready to take home on the same day. Display options include using it as floor decor, table embellishment or wall hanging. This class offers a large canvas which means you can go further with your tufted masterpiece. You can add intricate designs, more yarn colours and greater depth.

By the end of this class, you will have a newfound love for tufting, as well as a personalised rug that's yours to keep - an excellent keepsake from this fun thing to do in Liverpool!

Please note:
On booking you will be asked to give an idea of what rug you'd like to make and six yarn colours you'd like to use. You can also decide on the day with your teachers.

ELL-SQUARED is a Liverpool-based craft and textile duo who graduated from university with a degree in fine art and a dream. For more than three years, we have been honing our rug-tufting skills and finding to new ways to transform wool into pieces of art.

It was largely up to us to teach others how to do rug tufting because it became so popular, but now we just can’t stop! We’ve realised that teaching and spreading this incredibly wonderful method to others is our calling. We love to share our knowledge and the process of rug-making with others, whether in large groups or one-on-one, having taught sessions in universities and at events, we feel the need to share our knowledge outside of a university environment. We want to allow people to explore the benefits of slow craft and as a form of mindfulness -- but also to create a space for people to get creative in a non-serious environment! We've been teaching rug making for over a year now, with the goal of providing a space for students to learn this highly therapeutic skill and demonstrating that it's not as intimidating as it appears.
