Learn how to upholster a footstool at our weekend beginners upholstery workshop. On this two day course you will learn how to create a small mid-century style footstool using modern upholstery techniques.
This course is suitable for beginners or those with previous upholstery experience. Upholstering a footstool is a great introduction to upholstery.
The skills you can expect to learn are:
- Using tacks to attach hessian
- Securing foam
- Using fabric and trimmings to cover and finish
The course is 2 days and is £280. We provide all the equipment and materials you will need and we are offering a 10% discount on all fabric purchased through us. You will need to bring a piece of upholstery fabric to the class measuring 140cm x 100cm.
