Upholstery Skills Workshop
£65 per person

Upholstering is a great way to bring an old chair or footstool back to life and anyone can learn the basic skills.If you’re not sure whether upholstery is for you and want to try your hand at something new or if you just fancy getting creative and making an amazing project then this workshop is perfect!

This workshop is designed as a step by step introduction to the craft.

If you are a beginner you are recommended to start with a footstool frame (bring your own or buy a kit) or if you prefer bringing a project of your own, a drop in seat or dining room chair, stool, telephone table etc.

If you have experience already just bring your own project but nothing bigger than a fireside chair.

If you have any queries about the suitability of your project please contact us prior to booking.

During the workshop you will learn about the tools and materials used as well as covering lots of techniques from webbing, applying hessian, foam and wadding, cutting fabric and corners as well as building new seating. Stripping a chair can take as long as the re-upholstery so please remove all old fabric and padding prior to the workshop so you can focus on the creative part.

3 hrs teaching and close supervision (please be realistic on how much you can achieve during this time!!)
