Taster day – try upholstery

April 11, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


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 reupholstery. We provide everything else so don’t worry about the tools you might need or other materials like webbing, felt, calico and nails.

A footstool, dining chair with drop in seat or piano stool can be completed on a one day course. Just make sure that once the old materials are stripped off that there are no wobbly joints. It easiest to work with frames made of “proper” wood because mdf or veneered wood can be tricky.

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 a taster session will be those committed to a four day course. 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.

Any questions? Email upholsterachair@gmail.com or phone 07747 161428

This courses costs £65 + plus additional materials used – no more than £20 and probably a lot less.
