Description

As part of Work-shop Makery’s  host of programmes on the theme of Upcycling running in June, we are delighted to have Maaike from Furniture Resurrection presenting her fabulous Wall Button workshop in store.

Join a table of like minded creatives for a chilled out morning of design and making. Use industrial discards and designer fabric remnants to craft bespoke, tactile elements for your home. You’ll learn the basic upholstery principles and hand stitching techniques that you can apply to larger projects in the future. Your wall buttons will be the perfect graphic elements to round out your photo wall – consider re-using some of your favourite textile memories as part of your designs.

About Maaike Pullar

Furniture Resurrection is the Sydney based design studio of Designer/Maker Maaike Pullar.

Maaike approaches upholstery as textile art; exploring themes of history and nostalgia or simply playing with colour and balance, producing functional pieces that light up a room. Resurrected pieces celebrate the character embedded in pre-loved goods and textiles, often re-using portions of the original fabrics, buttons or trim, re-framing them in new palettes.

Designs are inspired by the existing bones of the piece and the personal style of each client.

The process is a hands on, craft-based approach. It enables a depth of narrative and personalization not possible via mass production. The act of creating textile art from salvaged fabrics, embroidering, quilting, printing and embellishing is one of reverence, and attention to detail.
