This Funzing Experience:

Our new 'Envelope Cushion' workshop is ideal for beginners, using a sewing machine, to be able to create this stylish cushion.

If you are completely new to sewing, and have not used a machine yet, we would advise taking our Intro to Sewing session first.

During this workshop, Craig, your host, will provide you with a pattern for your cushion, that you can use again and again. We will also show you how to put the pattern onto your fabric, cut out and sew together.

We will be making an envelope cushion which is a standard 45cm x 45cm. You will be able to purchase a filling or your cushion, once its made, from Amazon or Ebay. Or use it to cover an existing cushion you already have.

Workshop Breakdown:

  • Introduction
  • Making a paper pattern
  • Pinning patterns to fabric
  • Cutting out
  • Hemming edges
  • Folding and sewing
  • Ironing / Pressing

Requirements:

  • Fabric (115cm x 50cm minimum)

So, come along and join us in class making this funky cushion, that you will easily be able to make again and again at home! The perfect gift!

This workshop is also availble online, on our ' Online Learning Store'.

COVID-19 Update:

Your safety is important to us!

We will now be reducing the size of the workshop from 8 people to 4-5 people per class, to adhere to the social distancing measures. As we are reducing the class numbers, it is important that students adhere and respect our cancellation policy, until we can get business back to normal, and teach at the required capacity.

On entering, we will have sanitiser stations for you to to freshen up. All machinery, sewing stations, and tools you will be using, will be sanitised before you arrive, and between each session.

At your sewing station you will also have sanitiser wipes, should you feel you need to use them.

Our lavatories are communal, but they will be supplied with santiser wipes, hand wash and disposable towels.

  • WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

    Bring along your chosen fabric.

  • DO I NEED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION BEFORE I ATTEND?

    No, just turn up on the day!

  • RESCHEDULE & REFUND POLICY:

    Please note: Doors close 15 minutes after the start time on all workshops.

    We do ask our attendees to be on time. As we will not be able to go over missed content, health and safety once missed. We have had an issue with a lot of people all arriving at different times, which disrupts the teaching, leaves us with less time to teach, and not completing the workshop. Which in turn, leaves us with complaints from people who have arrived on time. Therefore, we are very strict with our door closing policy.

    You can cancel or amend a booking up to 5 days before your booking date. Outside of this policy there is a rebooking fee on this workshop.

    Only one reschedule permitted per booking. We do not offer free reschedules or refunds to latecomers, or outside of our cancellation policy.

  • WORKSHOP DURATION:

    This is a 2 hour workshop

  • AGE RESTRICTIONS:

    This workshop is suitable for 14 years and above. All students under the age of 17, must be accompanied by a participating adult.
