    You will learn about the tools and materials needed for upholstery and will be taught how to make one of our stylish footstools. The stools could be the centre piece of your lounge or bedroom, or are perfect for a snug or den.

    The size of the stools are approx 55 cm wide x 70 cm long x 30 cm high.

    For each stool you will be provided with the frame, legs and upholstery materials.

    The workshop is perfect for beginners or for those with some experience looking to expand their skills.

    You will learn to:

    Staple elasticated webbing and hessian to a wooden frame in preparation for your deep buttoned footstool.
    Prepare the foam for deep buttoning, including marking out the foam, drilling holes, and applying dacron.
    Prepare your fabric including marking out for buttoning, measuring and cutting the fabric
    Learn the process behind planning where the buttons will go.
    Make your own fabric buttons.
    Apply the buttons and to do pleating and corners.
    Finish and fix the legs to your stool.
    We keep the class size to no more than six people, so you will get lots out of the day. We supply you with all the tools & materials including a metre of fabric from the fabulous Warwick Amatheon Wool range which retails at £40 per metre.

    You need to choose the fabric colour and confirm this when you book the course. Alternatively, you can view the fabric colours available and order free fabric samples via the Warwick website.

    If you need any help with fabric selection, then please get in touch with us, and we can point you in the right direction.

    The workshops are held in our beautiful workshop, a converted Methodist Chapel, in Scholar Green nestled in the peaceful Cheshire countryside.

    The course will start at 9am, finishing at approximately 4.30-5pm. Hot drinks are included throughout the day. You will need to bring your own packed lunch with you.

    Our footstools are both decorative and practical for personal use, but also a lovely gift to be given to family or friends too.
