Here at Tufting London we believe everyone can create something amazing. All you need is enthusiasm to try something new!

One of our founders Chun first had his eyes opened to the world of rug making when he visited a factory, but decided that the real excitement lay in the handmade when he turned his 4 year old son’s drawing into a tufted art piece to hang on the wall in his home. The ‘Rainbow Racing Car’ has become a treasured family memento and never fails to bring a smile to Chun’s son’s face!

We want everyone to have the chance to make their own unique tufted memory at our specialised rug tufting workshops!

Alexandra Macey Nov 2023

Really fun experience, but would’ve liked more guidance towards the end of the session as I felt it was a little too ‘hands off’.

Amanda Boot Nov 2023

I attended the mini rug workshop with 2 friends. I cannot fault the experience and I speak for my friends also. We loved it!
Chun was a brilliant teacher. None of us had any previous experience. His introduction was to the point. He then remained discreetly present for any help and advice we needed.
The materials were beautiful and plentiful. The environment very spacious and comfortable. Location easily accessible by public transport.
I would thoroughly recommend this workshop and to leave with a finished rug was amazing.
Chuns passion for tufting was reflected from time of booking which was uncomplicated with any queries responded to almost immediately to leaving the studio with our masterpieces!
A truly wonderful and memorable experience.
Thank you xx

Textiles class review by Amanda Boot - London

Anonymised ClassBento student Nov 2023

Tufting London were amazing to me! Not only they allowed me to go with a complex design as a complete beginner, they went above and beyond to make sure I could finish my piece and had enough breaks when I was too focused!

The rug turned lovely and I definitely learned a lot about the whole process of tufting!

Myles Asiedu Nov 2023

This experience was very entertaining! The teacher was very informative and continuously provided words of encouragement to all the students!

They were very helpful and lenient with time, especially if you are struggling (like me).

They had an amazing array of thread colour choices and the space was so cute and well organised.

I highly recommend this experience for anyone, beginner or not! It was a lot of fun!

Emily Walden Oct 2023

The workshop was so much fun! The staff were super friendly and supportive, happy to give advice and support at all times. We felt so confident creating our rugs with the team around us.

Courtney Howarth Oct 2023

Absolutely loved this class, Lena was great and was so helpful and just left the two of us to it but was there to help right away if we needed anything (perfect) Keep telling everyone we know to do it

The team are pleasant, helpful, work well together. They have a great organised system that is efficient, reduces waste, and supportive of each other. Very clean toilet. Beautiful effort into Halloween decor as well. The class was educational and fun. Challenging and fulfilling. Went above my expectations and am very happy I took the risk and booked this workshop. Highly recommend.

Anonymised ClassBento student Oct 2023

Fun and easy activity. Well equipped space. But it’s hugely expensive for what it is!

Loved this experience and would definitely recommend it. The venue was very close to the station so easy to get to, the teacher was helpful and checked in on everyone throughout the class. I’m really impressed with how the rugs turned out

Mini Rug Tufting Workshop review by Abigail - London

Meera Sep 2023

The teacher was absolutely incredible, she was so helpful at every stage of the process. It was obvious she was really passionate about her job and loved what she does. I felt supported throughout the whole experience and she even helped me finish my rug before the time ran out! I would definitely come back again if she was to do the advance class. I had a really great time and was pleasantly surprised at the final outcome of my design, the class was super beginner friendly but you get to take home something beautiful which looks complex.

Textiles class review by Meera - London

Teacher's response

Hi Meera,

Thanks so much for your lovely review. We loved having you at the workshop and your finished rug looked amazing!

We hope to see you back soon for round 2!

Best wishes,
Tufting London

Nina Sep 2023

The activity itself was fun, but I think there were too many participants and the instructors were really rushed and the "boss" was a little rude / snappy. I definitely want to do more tufting, but wouldn't go to this place again unfortunately.

Teacher's response

Hi Nina,

I’m sorry that you wouldn’t return to Tufting London - we thought your rug was lovely and enjoyed having you.

Our Saturday sessions can be busy - the weekend always is - but we were actually under capacity in your session. One of our staff members was unavoidably delayed so we were a little understaffed for the finishing process, but we tried our best to get you all finished on time.

In terms of being rushed, we try to teach you as quickly as possible so that you have the longest time frame to do your tufting, so we are used to moving at a quick pace! We are available to answer any questions and provide guidance after the initial introduction.

Our boss tries his best to be helpful and kind to all customers, so we’re sorry you didn’t get on.

We hope you’re happy with your rug and that you reconsider.

Best wishes,
Tufting London

This was a great, fun class. I was pleasantly surprised at how accessible this craft is for absolute beginners; I was able to create a very cute rug with details in the design I would typically consider "intermediate" in crafting. The staff were all helpful and friendly and location very easy to find.

Teacher's response

Hi Julianne,

Thanks for your review! We're so happy you enjoyed the session and were happy with your rug!

It was so much fun
I enjoyed it thoroughly
The venue was nice and artsy. The teacher was sweet and helpful. The hours zoomed by and now I’m constantly thinking what I want to tuft next

Denise Chippindale Jul 2023

What a fantastic experience. I had to reschedule but I'm so glad I did and was able to attend. The teachers were so lovely and it really is beginner friendly. I went solo but automatically felt at ease. I loved being able to create and learn a new skill. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to try something different and create a new piece for their home.

Downside: I should have booked the 6 hours! I wanted more time so it didn't end so quickly ;)

Lovely class in a super convenient location 2 mins from the tube station, quiet clean space and plenty of room to learn and make a tufted rug. We really enjoyed the class and had so much fun and we’ll definitely be back! Would be super cute for girls events and dates , a little pricey but makes sense with all they provide and do for you!

We throughoutly enjoy our time at Tufting London as a family activity. We leanrt Chun was inspired by his son and turn this adorable idea into a family business.
Chun and his team are attentive and helpful, fully committed to help us turning our ideas into tangible rugs!
We were firing away at the beginning of Easter in this bright and well equipped spacious studio, then went home with precious rugs which we were very proud of. Thank you Chun and team
Definitely recommend anyone (bring friends and families) to spend a fun and colourful time in Tufting London!

Claire Hirschhorn Mar 2023

I had THE BEST time at this workshop! The space was easy to find, and while small, was enough space for everyone. The instructors are super helpful and kind. I was a half hour late due to train issues, but they still accommodated me and helped me get set up. I never felt rushed, and when one of my yarn spools ran out, the found me a fresh one to finish my project with. They were so patient and nice when you're shaving down your rug, and they take pictures of everyone's rug at the end. If I were here longer I would definitely come back for another class!

Came here for the third time and there was so much upgrades. There is so much more yarns colours now, I’m impress and there’s also yarns colours chart to choose the colours from. There’s now a mini vacuum cleaner to clean up the rug after shaving and also the giant vacuum. Even though I came here a few times already but the instructor still give out help on small details to make the rug more neat. The class was very chill and I got super cute rugs to take back home. Thank you once again.

Jane Caccavale Mar 2023

Excellent course, fun and productive - fully recommended. I’ll be tsking some friends along and go again.

The activity was very fun and relaxed. The teacher was very charistmatic and passionate about the subject and taught us many techniques to achieve the best result in our mini Rug!

The space was very cozy! Had great facilities and lots of space! We had some relaxing music playing in the background while doing the activity! Such a wonderful Saturday morning :)

Rug tufting was easier than we thought and the teacher explanation was very thorough, which definitely made a huge difference.
We had lots of colours to pick and choose from for the tufting and the process from beginning to finish was absolutely amazing!
Highly recommend! And will definitely be coming back again ;)

Perfect location right next to Nine Elms tube, the premises were clean, spacious airy and bright.
Friendly reception from the team and informative yet relaxed tutoring. I felt like I could work on my rug without having someone over my shoulder, but help was available whenever I needed it. The team were so helpful!
Lots of wool colour options available.
I’d love to do this class again when I next visit London.

Textiles class review by Sharon Mullin - London

Glen Swart Jan 2023

The illustrations we sent through were all set up on the canvas and ready for us to go on arrival, so we could get straight down to selecting the yarns (great selection of colours) and the tufting itself. The studio is spacious and well lit and all the tools and materials were provided.
Chun explained every step as we went along. From initial setup, safety, process and finishing. Made it super easy to understand and complete in just a few hours. So rare to start and finish a creative project in a few hours and walk away with a finished product —could not recommend it enough!

Anna Sanders Dec 2022

This class was fab! It was so much fun and our rugs turned out very lovely! The teacher was very patient and seemed to really care that our project turn out well. I went with my mum and it was great to spend a crafty morning together learning something completely new for us. They had masses of colours to choose from and our work stations were set up with our designs ready to go when we arrived. At the end they made sure we had glued dried and finished off the backs nicely so we could take them home with us.
