Join Ella Doran and upholstery supremos Urban Upholstery for a special sewing class using Ella’s signature printed fabrics. You will learn how to blind stitch and create your own unique cushion to take home at the end of the session. There will be a variety of pre-prepared fabrics to choose from. This will be a fun and creative sewing session and a great opportunity to chat to Ella & Patricia and Andrea about their design practices and design philosophy.
In this workshop you will learn how to blind stitch your calico inner cover, you will stuff the inner cover with recycled wool, and learn how to tuft the inner cushion to keep the wool in place, you will make your own unique fabric covered button using a special button making tool and complete your cushion by further blind stitching the outer cover, and applying the button to the outside of your cushion.
All levels are welcome for this class. We will go straight into the making process. All of the materials for this workshop will be provided, which will include, the fabrics, the recycled wool, scissors, needles, thread and the buttons.
