This course is suitable for beginners to upholstery and those with some previous experience. The course is designed to give students the opportunity to explore and apply modern upholstery techniques to a bespoke piece of furniture.
A hardwood stool frame will be provided as part of the course fee. Each week, via demonstration and practical application, students will learn how to strap, fill and cover their piece of furniture with the aim of students completing the stool by the end of the 10 week block.
Approx. dimensions of the stool frame; 450mm x 650mm x 80mm
"Very enjoyable. Great tutor. Well explained instruction and friendly. Had a great time & experience."
What do I need to bring?
Students will customise their stool to their own tastes so will need to provide their own top fabric, stool legs and any trimmings. Advice will be given in the first session about types of fabrics and where these items may be purchased from.
All other materials are included in the course fee.
All tools will be provided for use within the workshop, however advice and guidance can be given if you wish to purchase your own kit.
£250 for the 10 week block.
