Intro to Soft Furnishings

soft furnishings at The Goodlife CentreSuitable for absolute beginners who would love to be able to make their own cushions for seats, sofas, campervans, bell tents or piling onto beds in boudoirs.

Join us for either of our one-day workshops to learn the basics of soft furnishings. We are offering two different workshops: to either make a square zipped, piped cushion or a piped ‘boxed’ cushion.

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 upholsterers  will lead these small practical workshops.  Even if you have never used a sewing machine before, we will teach you step by step so that you have the skills to make more when you go home to build a collection of soft furnishings all of your own design.

All materials (including cushion pad) are provided and you will be able to choose your fabric from a selection we have at the centre.
