Join us for a one day workshop learning the basics of soft furnishings by making a fabric covered ‘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. This small practical workshop will be led by a professional upholsterer.
We will also show you how to fit a zip along one side so you can take your cover off for washing. But please note – due to the length of the course, it isn’t possible to include this technique in the one you take home.
This course requires knowledge and experience of using a domestic sewing machine.
We will teach you how to create a square 3” deep 35cm x 35cm piped boxed cushion to take home. All materials (including foam pad) are provided and you will be able to choose your fabric from a selection we have at the centre.
