Mid week upholstery workshop in Edinburgh

April 26, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Our workshops are designed for everyone; beginners looking for a one day taster course or those committed to a larger project. All skills levels welcome.

This “mix and match” way of running a workshop provides a chance to see the wide variety of chairs that are brought along for rejuvenation. We really believe that you can learn from each other and not just from the tutors.

Taster days are about finding out if upholstery works for you. Just bring a piece of furniture with all the old materials removed and the fabric you have chosen for re-upholstery. We provide all the tools you might need. The materials like webbing, felt, calico and nails are provided for a small additional charge.

A footstool, dining chair with drop in seat or piano stool can be completed on a one day course. Make sure that once the old materials are stripped off there are no wobbly joints. Ideally, your frame should be made of “proper” wood because mdf and veneered wood can be difficult to work with and an easy project to start with is always a good idea!

Committing to more than 1 day means you have a bigger project in mind – perhaps four days – just choose the dates that suit you best. Beginners as well as those who have already done some upholstery will be very welcome. You might already have basic tools, know what fabric you want to use and have a supply of everything else you need. In addition, specialist tools such as staplers, needles and button making equipment will be available to use, as well as a sewing machine.

Some additional materials will be available for purchase during the course.
Look at our website (upholsterachair.co.uk) and our Facebook page to get an idea of work previous students have achieved.

Please bring a picnic lunch, and we provide tea, coffee and cake.
