Tuft City was founded in 2020 by Brisbane artist/muralist Benjamin Reeve.

With a degree in Visual Arts and a Masters in Creative Advertising, Benjamin was set to complete his Doctorate as the world started closing its doors.

No longer able to continue his research, teach or paint outdoors, Benjamin discovered a 'tufting' video on TikTok and his love of fibre arts, an area first discovered as a child growing up in Papua New Guinea, was rekindled.

Compelled to learn everything he could about rug-making, Benjamin set to work gathering all the supplies and tools needed and now works hand-in-hand with factories and suppliers promoting rug-making and ensuring accessibility for all Australian creatives.

What an amazing workshop! Had a blast doing this workshop and with Ben who was the teacher. He was so informative, and everything was provided that we needed. My daughter and I had so much fun learning and making our own rugs as beginners. I would highly recommend this for anyone wanting to learn how to make their own rug. Using the hand held electric tool for tufting was so easy! I am definitely going to book and go again.

Calista Williams Nov 2023

This class was great! As someone who had never made rugs before we were made to feel totally at ease and calm - which allowed us to enjoy the experience so much more! Benjamin had us smiling the entire time and we left with some amazing rugs! We will be back again - we couldn’t recommend this more ????

Ben is a great tutor and I enjoyed our one on one time creating a cute rug for my granddaughter that only needs small tidying up and trimming jobs before it will be given to her. The venue was good, everything was provided and I learnt great new techniques.
