Chair Upholstery Weekend Workshop

£180.00

Our classes are suitable for the complete beginner as well as improvers. Students work on their own projects and are expected to bring a piece of furniture to work on. We can advise on the suitability of individual projects, and full details of what to expect and what is included will be sent out on booking or request. The types of projects suitable for the complete beginner would be a footstool/piano stool, dining chair, armless or fireside chair. They can be modern or antique, depending upon what you’d like to have a go at. We teach both modern and traditional upholstery techniques. Please remember that the more complicated a project, the more time will be needed to complete a piece.

What's included in the price

Learning upholstery skills and techniques can be tremendous fun as well as a lot of hard work, but the thrill of restoring an old chair and turning it into a beautiful, functional and even artistic creation can be extremely rewarding! We have a passion for upholstering, and we like to think that all of our students end up sharing this passion…We run courses throughout the year and publish new dates regularly so if you can’t make these dates, you might find other dates in our programme which are more suitable. If you would like an informal chat before you decide to book one of our courses please call Jill on 01934 752725 ext 301. We look forward to welcoming you to our Pretty Sitting Upholstery workshop in the heart of the Mendip Hills.

    How to Sew a Roman Blind

    HOW TO SEW A ROMAN BLIND

    Roman blinds are a great way of dressing a window, giving a simple, unfussy look. Whether you choose a patterned or plain fabric, you can make a feature of your windows without the expense of curtains.

    The aim of this class is to demonstrate all the techniques and stitches required to make a lined and interlined roman blind using your sewing machine and also sewing by hand to create a professional looking finish. You will create a 1m x 1m sample blind which will be velcroed onto a metal headrail.

    This class is suitable for anyone with basic hand sewing and sewing machine skills. If you are unsure whether you have these skills, why not sign up to our introductory class “How to get the best from your sewing machine”.

    All our classes at Pretty Sitting are designed to give students professional standard teaching in small groups. So, places are always limited, but we run a programme of classes throughout the year, and hopefully you can find dates that suit.
    Please bring a packed lunch with you. We have a small kitchen/dining facility within the workshop where you can use a fridge, microwave and kettle. Alternatively, there are a number of food shops and eateries locally in the Gorge or in the village centre.
