Gillian Arnold’s design and print your own cushion workshop, hosted in Darlington and Bishop Auckland, will be a wonderful journey into design composition and fabric printing and promises to be an extremely fun and enjoyable night of craft and conversation. Using a great selection of nature inspired motifs, you will create your own pattern and design, which you will then print onto a cushion that you will take home with you at the end of the workshop. Gillian will be on hand to talk through composition strategy, printing techniques and show you how to use all the tools available to create a beautiful one of a kind cushion, made entirely by you.
What does the course cover?
You will be producing a highly professional nature inspired design to your own specifications, which you will print yourself onto a soft velvet cushion. The course will cover all the necessary skills in composition and some wonderful insight into fabric printing unique designs.
What do I need to bring?
You don’t need to prepare or do anything for this workshop, making it highly accessible to people of all skills levels and ages. We will provide all the materials required including your cushion cover, and all the artwork and motifs. You can also purchase a duck feather cushion pad for £4 extra, subject to availability.
