Cushion Making

Twice a year Sarah opens her studio to teach Hawkshead House Courses from her beautiful home on the edge of the English Lake District.

Our Cushion Making courses are one day courses and are run by soft furnishings supremo, Julie Evans. Julie, with 20+ years’ experience, oversees all of the making-up at Sarah Osmond Interiors. Sarah is also on-hand for her lunch and coffee-making skills.


Requiring no previous experience, you will learn how to make a piped cushion cover with a zipped opening. You will learn how to make your own piping from fabric cut ‘on the bias’, how to join piping and how to insert a zip. You will also cover other cushion making techniques and designs including the envelope method and oxford cushion covers. You will take home your cushion cover together with a luxurious feather pad.


By popular demand we have now introduced a Box Cushion Making Course. Leading on from the Piped Scatter Cushion course or assuming a similar level of knowledge, you will learn how to make a box cushion cover with a zip opening having made your own piping. So useful for window seats and loose covers you will go home with your box cushion cover together with a foam inner pad.
