Pleated Texture

I’m loving the variety of design ideas that can be explored with this twisted pleat texture! Have a look at my cushion.

I decided to go rainbow bright for a added optical illusion. I want to try out smaller, tighter pleats with one subtle colour and also experiment with the pleats running diagonal on the cushion.

As of right now I have spaces available in my textured cushion class. Come along and try this technique out yourself!

Technical difficulties = :( New classes = :)

Good Morning everyone!

Starting with bad news… We are having some technical issues with the display of our class details on our calendar and class lists pages. We are working on a remedy but it is taking some time. Hopefully we will have everything back online soon.

Then the good news! In the meantime be sure to go directly to our Eventbrite account for class details.

There are lots of new classes on the list for you to choose from. Here are a few of my favourites that I’m looking forward to:
