Maybe you’ve done the Crate Toppers workshop, or maybe you haven’t. Maybe you don’t like to start small, maybe you just want an ottoman to treat your feet at the end of the day. This one’s for you – A pre-fab ottoman that’s approx 40 x 50cm x 30cm. *
Spend a day learning the basics of upholstery
- Foam layering and crimping
- Working with hessian
- Using Wadding
- Applying fabric
stretch directions, release cuts and pleats
- Decorative nails
- Dust Tape
A selection of plain fabrics is always provided, but if you want to buy or piece (pre-sew) your own, you’ll need 1.3 square metres of fabric.
This is a great opportunity to get creative and make something wild – patchwork fabrics, screen print, stencil or paint canvas to bring along on the day. Or simply buy something that gets you excited. Try Bev’s Remnant House (Redfern), or australian designers and printers online – Publisher Textiles, Rouse Phillips, Cloth Fabric, Ink & Spindle, Surface Art… So many lovely things!
All classes are held in the Croydon Studio unless otherwise noted.
This workshop is currently available for group bookings of 4 -6. Please email Maaike to discuss.
*In line with our love of sustainable design and one-off pieces, the frames are made from off cuts and re-use timber. Leg details and height are prone to change based on the supply of timber available. You can always swap out your re-use legs for something a little more your style at a later date.
