Most Armchairs have loose cushion seats, otherwise known as ‘Box Cushions’. These are often piped and have a zip to make the cover removable, commonly found on Ercol, mid-century, Parker Knoll Winged Armchairs or Sofa’s.
If you have upholstered an ArmChair at Bristol Upholstery Collective, you will probably need to enrol on this workshop to complete the whole chair.
Sewing skills are very different to those needed to reupholster items. To enable us to deliver quality tuition, we keep these courses separate as to not distract tutors with sewing machine issues during upholstery classes. It’s difficult to teach both practical upholstery and sewing skills in the same class, although we are very happy to help you prepare.
To sew a box cushion, a good level of sewing knowledge is helpful so we recommend you attend a beginners sewing workshop so you are comfortable taking on this challenge. We aim to build confidence and achieve quality results. A great deal of precision and patience is required when learning, so basic knowledge and a fearless approach are encouraged.
