WMW x Girls With Drills Design and Make Ottamans


Back by popular demand! 

If you've never used a drill, this workshop will introduce you to the basic functions of a drill. You'll learn to make a pilot hole and how to choose the right screw for the job.

You'll take home a handcrafted ottoman with hidden storage.

Please bring 1.5 meters of fabric to personalise your ottoman. If you have experience upholstering and want to add tufts, feel free to bring buttons and other embellishments along. 

The finished product will measure slightly larger than 50cm x 50cm and 30cm tall.

At this workshop, you can learn these techniques and skills:

  • The basics of using a drill
  • Using reclaimed wood
  • Installing hardware - hinges
  • Using a handsaw
  • Upholstery
  • Making pocket holes with the Kreg Jig System

This is a full day workshop with a one hour break to rest your brain, feet and hands. We'll do all the woodwork in the first two hours, have a break with some refreshments and snacks, and come back to finish the upholstery.

We Make Works is a space dedicated to making based at Roco. We are building a range of facilities for makers, artists, designers, creators and anyone who wants the space and tools to test ideas, manufacture products or learn new skills.
