Upholstery workshop at Newbattle Abbey 10 am to 5pm – coronavirus cancellation
May 30, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm£95
This upholstery workshop is held in the fascinating Newbattle Abbey which has a 900 year history – there is something intriguing to see, where ever you look!
All skills levels welcome
Bring a piece of furniture, your fabric and any final trimming, such as braid or nailstrip.
Before you come strip off all the old materials and fix any wobbly joints. Ideally, your frame should be made of “proper” wood because mdf and veneered wood can be difficult to work with
In one day you can complete a footstool, dining chair with drop in seat or piano stool
If you have a bigger project in mind – perhaps four days – just choose the dates that suit you best.
Any additional materials (eg webbing, hessian, calico, ) will be available for purchase during the course.
All catering, including lunch, provided.
Look at our website (upholsterachair.co.uk) and our Facebook page to get an idea of work previous students have achieved.
You are welcome to visit any course before you decide if upholstery is for you and we are always available to provide advice and discuss what you would like to achieve.
