Cushion sewing classes

Special note regarding Covid-19 crisis: We will commence these classes as soon as we are able to according to restrictions being lifted and when it is safe to do so. Our classes will be run with only one or two participants at any one time and we will be adopting extra health and hygiene practices during this time. Please contact us so that we can discuss class start times with you.

These classes, instructed by Helena Kinnunen, are an introduction to upholstery sewing during which time students will make or recover their own cushions. It is suitable for beginner to intermediate skill level. Helena will cover topics such as fabric selection, pattern making, cutting and sewing for making seat, back and scatter cushions for furniture. 

The students may purchase as many 3 hour class sessions as they would like between January to May 2020. These are held either one-on-one or as small classes so each student will have the opportunity to work closely with Helena. Students may bring in their own cushions to recover along with their fabric, or they may purchase fabrics, cushion inserts and accessories from us. 

Price: $180 per 3 hour session (including GST), excluding materials.
Session details: Thursdays and Fridays from May to August 2020
