Upholstery workshops at Glencorse Community Centre

September 24, 2016 @ 10:00 am - October 8, 2016 @ 5:00 pm


Workshops at Glencorse: 24 September, 8 October

Our workshops are designed for everyone and all skill levels – just pick the dates that suit you. We work from a number of different venues and prices can vary, so the dates are listed for each venue. On average, those doing bigger projects such as armchairs find that four days works well.

Whatever your experience, all are welcome. There will be an average ratio of two tutors to eight students so there will always be help to hand, using traditional skills and working to professional standards.

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 Glencorse Community Centre venue is about 4 miles from the Straiton exit on the City of Edinburgh Bypass, so easily accessible from Edinburgh, East Lothian, Glasgow area and further afield. You can bring a picnic lunch or use the wonderful community café. We provide tea, coffee and cake.

The course at this venue costs £75 a day plus any materials purchased during the course.
