Come and try upholstery – a taster!

December 13, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


This one day upholstery course is on Saturday 13 December from 10am to 5pm at Tribe Porty, 19 Windsor Place, Portobello, Edinburgh EH15 2AJ

This is a great opportunity to find out whether you would enjoy learning more about upholstery and beginners are very welcome. We work to professional standards using traditional methods.

During the course, which runs from 10am to 5pm you will learn how to reupholster a small piece of furniture such as a footstool, dining chair with drop in seat, or a piano stool.

Two tutors will make sure you have all the help you need. Just bring your piece of furniture with all the old materials removed (making sure there are no wobbly joints) and your new fabric. Be aware that if your frame includes plywood or mdf, this could be difficult to work with, so “proper” wood frames are best.

This course costs £95 and includes use of all tools and additional materials such as webbing, black felt, calico, tacks etc.

Please bring a picnic lunch, but Earthy Portobello is on the ground floor with provide wonderful things to eat and we bring cake!
