ZIPPER + CUSHION MAKING 2 DAY COURSE - 2 x Friday workshops 9.30 - 2.30 - Friday 23rd/ 30th April
Have you always wanted to know how to sew cushions, insert zippers and even tackle piping finishes around the edges? The perfect course if you want to refresh some of your home decor or even just progress from a Learn to Sew Course onto more challenging projects.
Over 2 weeks you will learn to become confident enough to make your own simple cushions at home. After the introductory practice week there is one further class to master your sample cushion. Take the time, don’t feel rushed and enjoy the making process in a small nurturing class environment.
All materials for Week One are provided. We will then go through the materials required for Week 2 during the first class so you can buy all the things you need.
Week One: This is all about zippers and cushion patterns! Lots of practice pieces to learn through doing. Not only will we learn about zippers but also zipper feet, piping finishes and different effects on cushions including shapes and styles.
Starting at 9.30 in the studio - this is a 3hr class which is then followed by a visit to the Super Centre at Belrose to look at Home Decor stores and also to check out supplies in Spotlight (and buy supplies for Week 2). We will have a short (30min) lunch break on arrival and shop from 1.30 - 2.30pm.
Week Two: Own Project - cushion making.
Starting at 9.30 - you can take 3 hours or up to 5 hours making your cushion project. Lots of time to focus, relax and go with the flow. Either BYO lunch or pop up to the Castle Cove shops at lunchtime to break up the day (no food available at the studio centre).
REQUIREMENTS: Closed toe footwear for safety.
You may also bring your own machine if you would like to sew on it but I do have new machines in the studio to use. Machines must be Australian compliant (no adaptors please) and in good working order.
FOUR PERSON MAXIMUM FOR THIS CLASS. We also need a minimum of 2 students to run this class. Covid safe principles apply at our studio.
If sold out or you can’t attend on these dates, please email me (Liz) via firstname.lastname@example.org so I can connect you with any additional dates/ courses that are added/ planned.
Class held at our Craft Studio - Studio D, 12 Denawen Ave, Castle Cove.
