This one day course runs from 10.00 - 4.00 and includes free parking, drinks and light refreshments. Lunch can be bought in the local shops and cafes if required. No experience is needed for this course and it is suitable for all ages from teens and beyond. You will take your completed footstool home at the end of the day.
Class sizes are limited to 8 and there will be two tutors on the day to provide an appropriate level of guidance and instruction. This is a fantastic introduction to the skills of upholstery and many students continue to a full 12 week course with more complex items of furniture renovation.
You will learn how to work with a variety of tools and equipment, work with fabric to get the best from the pattern, how to apply foam, how to fold and cut corners, how to shallow button and how to finish a project. You will also have a choice of waxes to finish your legs to complement your chosen fabric. The weekend upholstery course is led by Jan Dyson.
Cost for the day including all materials and use of tools to complete the footstool to the point where it needs a top cover is £135. You will need to supply a metre of your chosen top cover fabric. The standard size of the footstool on this course is approx 50cm x 35cm and 30cm in height. Small Queen Anne legs are used and can be waxed or stained to match your fabric. If you want to paint the legs please check with us at the time of booking.
These courses may be postponed subject to restrictions in place at the time.
