Try upholstery – one day taster course

October 18, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm


This one day upholstery course is on Saturday 18 October from 10am to 4.30pm at Cockenzie House and Gardens, 22 Edinburgh Road, Cockenzie and Port Seaton, East Lothian EH32 0HY.

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 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.

There is an excellent tea room at Cockenzie House for reviving tea, coffee and lunch.
