4 day upholstery course

April 16, 2016 @ 10:00 am - May 7, 2016 @ 5:00 pm


Dates: 16 April 2016, 23 April 2016, 30 April 2016, and 7 May 2016
Each day runs from 10am to 5pm.

Our 4 day workshops are designed for everyone – just pick the dates that suit you. Whatever your experience, all are welcome. With two tutors and no more than eight students, there will always be help to hand, using traditional skills and working to professional standards.

Committing to a 4 day option means you have a bigger project in mind. Beginners as well as those who have already done some upholstery will be very welcome. You will probably already have basic tools, know what fabric you want to use and have a supply of everything else you need.
Some additional materials will be available for purchase during the course, although there is a limited supply. Specialist tools such as staplers, needles and button making equipment will be available to borrow.

You can come and see us in action before your course begins and that gives you a chance to talk through what to expect and ask lots of questions.
Look at the gallery on our website and our Facebook page to get an idea of work previous students have achieved.
Alongside those coming for the four day course will be those who have signed up for one day taster sessions. We hope this “mix and match” way of running courses gives beginners a chance to see and be inspired by the wide variety of chairs brought along for rejuvenation. We really believe you can learn as much from each other as from the tutors.

The venue is just off the A1 and near the Edinburgh City bypass, so easily accessible from Edinburgh, East Lothian, Glasgow area and further afield. The centre is also on bus routes to and from Edinburgh and East Lothian and near to Wallyford Station. Bringing a picnic lunch is recommended and we provide tea, coffee and cake.

This course costs £260 plus any materials purchased during the course.
