Workshop

INTRO TO SOFT FURNISHINGS Expired

soft furnishings at The Goodlife CentreFor absolute beginners who would love to make their own cushions for seats and sofas.

Join us for a one day workshop learning the basics of soft furnishings.

Learn the principles of cushion designs by creating toning combinations of fabrics. Master the techniques of measuring, marking and cutting accurately to maximise fabric use and how to pattern match. Learn how to make piping using bias cut strips and piping cord.  We will show you how to fit a zip along one side so you can take your cover off for washing.

Professional upholsterer, Louise Richardson will lead this small practical workshop.  Even if you have never used a sewing machine before, we will teach you how to create a square zipped, piped cushion cover to take home.  All materials (including cushion pad) are provided and you will be able to choose your fabric from a selection we have at the centre.
