These workshops are suitable for beginners or experienced upholsterers and will run on a Friday at Saturday once or twice a month. During these classes, you will be able to bring along a small project of your own to work on. It could be a deep-buttoned stool, sprung chair or a small armchair. If you are a complete beginner, it would be advisable to start with a simple project such as a drop-in seat, which will provide you with the upholstery basics and enable you to work through future projects more independently. Before commencing this course, it is important I know what you intend to bring to work on. This will ensure that I have the appropriate resources and materials ordered in for you. I can also advise on how long the project should take you to complete, and the techniques involved in the make. What does the course involve? These courses are informal but very busy. You will receive step-by-step instructions on how to strip and rebuild your piece of furniture using the appropriate techniques for your individual project. What should I bring to the course? Bring along your chosen piece of furniture and enthusiasm. Sundries and materials, tools and equipment will be available for you to use during these workshops. Bring a packed lunch. Arrive anytime from 9:20 so that you have time to set up and have a tea/coffee before you start. Aprons will be available, but avoid wearing your best clothes as some processes can be a little messy. Wear shoes that cover your feet. You will need to supply your own Top Fabric. Are there any additional costs? All upholstery materials/fillings and sundries (other than tacks and staples) will be charged for by amount used. Payment for these will be taken at the end of the course. What is included in the course cost?
