Awesome experience! Edlyn and Asad were super friendly and helpful, they even brought out snacks mid session for everyone. The mats came out really nice and I am extremely happy with the result. Would definitely do it again and can recommend to anyone who is thinking of trying out Tufting.

Had a great time, the instructors set up our canvas ahead of time and have us good tips and tricks for how to tuft our rug. The hardest part was trimming, but you can pay to get them to do it for you if you prefer. A fun activity with friends, and a super cool keepsake based on your own interests!

Had a great afternoon at Tuftea Studio today. The tutors led us through using the equipment, creating our rugs and then finishing them. They constantly checked that we were ok and feeling confident. I love my rug, and I am already planning doing another class with my daughter.

Had a great afternoon with my 14 yr old son who chose to do a tufting class. I had never heard of tufting before. The staff were lovely, young and very helpful. It was easy to learn and we left with a rug we were very happy with. There were plenty of beautiful yarn colours to choose from. The venue in North Strathfield had a great vibe with large mural paintings on the wall and music. It was easy to find parking nearby as well as cafes and restaurants to eat. I was really happy with our choice to do this class.

Had a great time at Tuftea studio! Everyone there was super supportive and knowledgeable - fun to talk to as well :). The space is a nice and chill - a great way to spend a couple hours on Sunday. We were working on a shared one and they let us make a mini one as well so one person didn't go home empty handed which we really appreciated . Thanks Tuftea studio

Making my carpet was really fun :)
The instructors were knowledgable and helpful with how to use the tufting gun and came around regularly to check your progress. There is a big selection of colours for the yarn and the class environment was freindly and chill.
While the class offers excellent value, it may be a bit pricey to do again.

Jessica Dai Sep 2023

A super fun and reasonably challenging experience.
After some initial instructions you're all set to tuft away, with the instructors coming around with suggestions for how to make your rug turn out better. I'm very satisfied with how cute the rug came out, even with all my wobbly lines. Though there's a lot of yarn colour options, you are limited by what they have available so choose carefully~

My most favourite ClassBento EVER!
I brought my own WOOF WOOF DESIGN to the class. I chose my colours and Tara helped me make my own mat.
It was a little hard at first to learn.
Everyone was friendly
I liked all the drawings on the walls- they are cool.
Thank you - I want to come again and make more designs for my family

went out of my comfort zone, doing a class on my own, I was none the wiser. The instructors were incredibly welcoming making me feel like I’d been there before. They have great advice, great instructions and only want you to get the best out of the class. I’m going back to Tassie with a cute rug!

The team at Tufttea were absolutely fantastic. None of us had tufted before and we felt supported throughout the whole tufting process. The atmosphere was great and friendly, and whenever any of us got stuck, they were always happy to give us a hand. I'm so happy with the final product and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to friends and family.

Edlyn, Asad & Zakee were all very knowledgable and friendly. They provided a very fun and exciting experience for our first tufting workshop! They had a wide selection of colours and good quality material at a very open and beautiful studio. My friends and I enjoyed the class so much and had such a memorable experience, we cannot wait to come back and create some more!
The workshop ran super smoothly and on time and we really appreciated that we could take home what we made on the day :)
Thank you guys
