    TUFTING CLASS: Beginner Tufting

    We know! Our tufting classes are selling out quickly. If you are available during weekday afternoons, you can book a one-on-one or small group private tufting class for the same price. 

    It's time to learn to tuft! We'll spend the afternoon shooting yarn out of a gun into fabric to create some amazing wall hangings.

    We provide frames, fabric, yarn and tufting guns for you – all you need to provide is your design idea. We'll contact you after you purchase your ticket to find out what you plan to tuft. 

    • You will be using a frame that has approximately 26 x 26 inches of workable area. It's big & you don't have to use the whole space.

    • We will focus on getting comfortable using the tufting gun.

    • We will use acrylic yarn so the piece you make will be best hung on a wall. We will have yarn available for you - but if you would like to use something specific, you are welcome to bring size 4 acrylic yarn. 

    • Instructions on how to finish your piece will be provided at the end of the class and you can finish it on your own time.

    This class will take place at Monster. Our address is 1716 NW Market Street, Seattle, WA 98107. It's at the intersection of 17th and NW Market Street - kitty corner from Mighty-O Donuts.

    If you cannot attend class for any reason, we will offer an exchange to another class currently on our schedule up to 48 hours before the class. After that time, no refunds or exchanges are issued out of respect for our teachers who purchase and prepare supplies based on the number of attendees.

    Our current Covid protocol is that anyone attending an event can email us at to let us know they prefer that people wear masks and/or we check vaccination records up to 72 hours before the event begins. Your request is anonymous to all the other participants.

    Attendees will receive an email before the class to let them know If we will be requiring masks be worn.

    Would’ve been better if they walk you through the whole process instead of cutting it short at the end. Not only were instructions unclear to finish, but they didn’t provide any carpet adhesive to finish the rug and weren’t very good at teaching how to shave the rug. The class is cool to get an idea of what tufting is but I definitely recommend looking into other options that pay closer attention to the small details.

    Great class

    The class was really great and I learned a lot! It was great for beginners. I only wish that glue would have been included since there was not enough time to completely finish the projects

    A Great Way To Try Before You Buy

    I love that Monster had all of the equipment needed to get a new wave of potential tufters started. I especially love that I get to spend a little time learning the craft in their space, under their expertise instead of stubbornly diving into it on my own for what would probably have been the latest in a line of expensive art styles I go headfirst into. And I love that they offer open studio too- so you can continue to test your skill without having to have your own fully stocked studio.

    Extremely Fun!!!!!

    I had a wonderful time learning to tuft at Monster. Atmosphere was laid back and fun but I learned all the information needed to make a tufted rug. I would highly recommend taking this class at Monster if you need some creative time in your life!
