There is one catch – the activity isn’t exactly free. It costs $19.80/pax and you must have spent at least $100 at Haidilao Bugis+ in the past week to book a slot. So yes, there’s no need to scarf down your rolls of black pork, US beef, and tofu in order to make it in time for your session. Enjoy your food first, then come back another day to get crafty.

Don’t worry, there are more than 30 available options, so there’s bound to be one that tickles your fancy.

Once you’ve chosen your rug design, it’s just a matter of following the usual steps for rug tufting: trace out the design using a light projector, pick out your coloured yarn, get tufting, cut out the rug, and seal the back.

If it’s your first time, don’t sweat it, there are staff on standby to help you out. Plus, the rugs you’ll be tufting are small, so you’ll be able to bring home your masterpiece immediately.
