      Come learn the exciting new medium of machine tufting! Portland artist Melissa Monroe will be teaching the fundamentals of tufting — proper technique, sourcing supplies and finishing options. By using a hand held tufting machine you can create a rug or wall hanging. Each student will leave class with a 20” x 20” loop pile rug or wall hanging!

      Melissa will share her intuitive process of designing by working to create imagery, color patterns, and texture within the work. She welcomes students who have a specific design in mind as well as students who are starting from a blank slate!

      Each student receives their own workspace with a loop pile tufting machine and frame to use during the workshop. Previous student work can be seen on instagram @tuftingworkshop

      This is an in-person workshop (April 15-16) at the Art Works in Edmonds WA, coordinated by the Lynn Hanson Gallery.  Detailed Information about the workshop, fee for supplies, and use of the tufting gun can be found at  Questions? all Lynn Hanson at 206-960-2118 or Melissa Monroe at 503-484-6970 or email

      Workshop fee is $400, including coffee, tea, and snacks.
