DIY Ottoman Workshop

Make your own ottoman



4 hours Class size 1 to 40     label $160


Step up your game with this DIY Ottoman workshop for beginners and intermediates.

You’ll learn to crimp foam, stretch fabric,  fold corners, add buttons and dust cover while using hand tools you’ve probably already got at home.

These skills will give you the confidence to tackle a wider variety of furniture projects at home, from other footstools to fully upholstered dining chairs and more.

All you need to do is bring along a fabric you love (40 x 60 x 31) and we supply the base so you can take home your unique upholstered ottoman!

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
    • All tools for use during the workshop incl. staples, button twine, decorative tacks etc
    • Ottoman bases (Ply & Pine construction)
    • Foam
    • Dacron

 

What to bring

    • REMEMBER TO BRING FABRIC: you need 1.3m of your chosen fabric. Note that the top/most visible portion of the ottoman is approx. 60cm x 40cm will be visible in the final product, so keep the pattern/design on the fabric laid out and sized with that in mind.
    • Bring a snack if you need (water is supplied)

From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals.

Great work between different levels of skill and understanding. Good venue. Solar panels to the aircon would be grand.

Great to have a coffee shop in front.


Excellent. Support. Skill fully. And socially

Thanks Sandra jane. Klinge

I had a great day with Robyn learning how to make our ottoman!
Love the results and is now a great piece in my lounge room.

Textiles workshop review by Samantha Weber

Debra Vermillion  •  Aug 2020


Very excited to do this class. Excitement started to wane when came time to staple as staple guns were of very poor quality and I had difficulty finding a decent one to use. Teacher didn't help much, but after everyone else was finished, helped me. Then I felt rushed and not entirely pleased with the end result.
This class needs new and better staple guns.
Regards, Debra

Workshop was great fun and teacher was very good, helpful and easy going.

Feedback for the workshop space - some better lighting would be great. I was working on table near front (closest to front of venue), and lighting was a bit dim for working on the ottoman. Otherwise, great venue.

Enjoyable way to spend a morning and you get to take your functional item home. I would recomended this class.

Yasmin Kennedy  •  Aug 2020


This was a great workshop easier than I thought it would be! And I love the end product. There was time for everyone to be shown what to do, out teacher was very patient, other participants were also more than keen to lend a hand.

For future participants, be aware of how much fabric you need, it caught a couple of us out. You need a 67x85 cm piece for the top, and two 30x105 cm pieces for going around the sides. Check your piece of fabric to make sure you have enough length and also in case you need to pattern match.
