Make your own piped cushion using Ella Doran fabrics with Ella Doran herself!

Date: 25 November 2017 10:00 to 17:00

Join leading designer Ella Doran for a special sewing class using her signature, digitally-printed fabrics. There will be a variety of pre-cut fabrics to choose from. Then you can personalise your cushion or pillow with appliqué and/or piping, assemble and stuff with recycled wool! A lovely gift for your home or someone special! This will be a fun and creative sewing session and a great opportunity to chat to Ella about her design practice and philosophy.


Ella Doran is a multi-talented designer, who uses her own photography, mark-making and textile design skills to create a wide range of outcomes, from products and fabrics to large-scale environmental graphics. Her work includes commissions for The Yorkshire Sculpture Park, The Royal Society of Arts, Kew Botanic Gardens, Tate, The John Radcliffe Hospital, The Royal London Hospital, Paloma Picasso and Portmeirion. Alongside her commissioned pieces, Ella runs her highly-successful ‘Ella Doran’ homewares brand at www.elladoran.com


All levels are welcome for this class. We will go straight into the making process. If you want to learn how to set up the machine and all about the different stitch functions, we do cover this in our morning ’Provisional Driving’ introduction to using a sewing machine class.


On completion of this class, participants will confidently be able to:

- have fun using a sewing machine and assembling cloth panels

- create decoration by combining decorative stitches and appliqué

- insert piping to give a decorative edge

- create a simple hemmed 'overflap' opening for your cushion or pillow.

- make a stylish 3d functional object

TIME: 10am - 1pm or 2 - 5pm

PRICE: £45

Includes stylish fabrics from Ella Doran's studio.
