Description

Soft Furnishing - Cushions Workshop

Join us at The Makers' Space, Longbarn Village, Alcester Heath, Alcester, B49 5JJ for the Soft Furnishing - Cushion Workshop. 

 

Skill Level: Beginners Class

 

Hosted by Annette Davis owner of Designworks Interiors who specialises in making high end curtains & blinds for private clients & interior designers. Now as Annette aims for retirement, it is her passion to pass her skills on to others. 

  

During this workshop you'll start your day by making a simple cushion including cutting your fabric to size, sewing the sections together and learning how to insert a zip. Followed by a second cushion, this time including how to make piping and how to insert it into the cushion.
