Hours: 9am - 3pm
Bring your own project to our 8 week upholstery leisure course. You will work at your own pace in a relaxed and friendly learning environment, developing a whole range of upholstery skills and gaining a great insight to this amazing trade.
This course is suitable for beginners or those with previous upholstery experience.We encourage beginners to start with a dining chair, footstool or something small but the decision is yours. You are also invited to work on a variety of projects or just tackle one.
Whether your chosen item is a prized family heirloom or a recent vintage find, you will learn how to completely reupholster it in a fabric of your choice. If you don’t have a project in mind we can help you source something and are always on hand to give design and fabric inspiration.
The skills you can expect to learn are:
Complete stripping down of your piece of furniture
Basic woodwork skills, cleaning wood, glueing joints, filling holes.
Traditional upholstery including springs, stuffing, stitching
Modern upholstery skills, cutting foam and sewing.
