Embark on a creative journey with our tufting class in Liverpool. This workshop will guide you through the art of rug making in a warm and welcoming artist studio in the heart of the Baltic Triangle. Breathe in the inspiration from The Royal Standard artists and make a whole day of it by exploring the nearby venues, cafes and restaurants.

This rug tufting workshop with Ell-Squared is perfect for beginners who are eager to learn to tuft and create something unique. Don't worry if you've never held a tufting gun before; no prior experience is required. Whether you're looking for team building activities or date ideas, Liverpool rug tufting is the answer!

Working together as a duo, you'll have two lovely and talented teachers on hand to share top tips. Starting with an introduction before moving onto hands-on practice, you'll learn plenty of new knowledge on tufting. All the yarns and tools you need will be provided!

There will be some time for you to plan designs and you can use projectors to ensure your finished rug is picture perfect! Or design right onto the canvas if you'd prefer. But your teachers are on hand to help you discover your dream rug with their portfolio of work and vivid imaginations.

You'll make a 40cm-40cm tufted masterpiece which will be backed, carved and ready to take home the same day. There are also options for displaying your work as a floor piece, table decoration or wall hanging.

In the end, not only will you have mastered the basics of tufting but also created a beautiful hand-tufted artwork that's yours to take home. This an excellent memento of this delightful 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 two-three 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.

Me and my friends had an amazing time on Friday, was especially nice because it was my friends birthday. The teachers were so lovely and very informative, I feel like me and my friends were kind of nervous when we first arrived but the nerves quickly went away thanks to the amazing teachers we had.

We love our rugs and want to continue the hobby in the future.

Honestly was 10/10
