Step up your game with this DIY Ottoman workshop for beginners and intermediates.
You’ll learn to crimp foam, sculpt stool tops, 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.
You’ll take home your very own handmade upholstered ottoman (40x60x31).
NB if choosing to BYO fabric you may also wish to BYO matching buttons – check out the button shop – king st Newtown – they’ll make buttons from your fabric, or you may find something else exciting there too!
