About the Event

On our one day traditional upholstery course you will learn the skills and methods needed to upholster traditional furniture. These basic skills are the basis for all traditional upholstery and are a great foundation to build on for  more advanced upholstery and future projects. Using a craftsman made frame, 30.5cm by 30.5cm, you will learn how to web, add stuffing, create a stitched edge and attach your top covering. Our bespoke frames have been created so you can easily add legs and turn your sample into a beautiful footstool. Turned Pine legs can be purchased from us on the day if you wish.

All materials to create your frame are provided all you need is 50x50cm of an upholstery fabric of your choice for your top covering. 

Please do bring your own drinks and a packed lunch.

Duration 8. hrs  (incl. 1/2 hour lunch break).

Cost  £155
