1 Day Cube Footstool Course



Make your very own super cute cube footstool at our Reloved Works studio here in Stockport, in just one day!

After a restoration project for the BBCs 'Money for Nothing' making two footstools, Simion loved the idea of running a one day course teaching all the basics of upholstery and students being able to take home their very own cube footstool.

All of our courses are relaxed and friendly but structured. The Reloved Works studio is housed in a beautiful Edwardian Mill in Stockport. There is plenty of free parking available on site and a massive vintage emporium downstairs with a great cafe for lunch. Complimentary Retro snacks from the Reloved tuck shop along with tea and coffee will be available throughout the day. Obviously a studio music playlist is a must whilst we work away (remember to bring along your favourite song choices!)

In the workshop you will learn;
* What's in an upholsters toolbox
* How to use the tools of the trade
* Pattern cutting
* Using a sewing machine and understanding seam allowances
* How the use a Pneumatic staple gun
* Making piping
* Fabric button making

This is the perfect course to gain an insight into the world of upholstery AND you get to take home your very own footstool that you have made.

The cube footstool is the perfect size to pop in the boot of your car or take home on the train. Alternatively we can also arrange delivery of your footstool if this is more convenient.

This course is also perfect for a team building day, stag and hen activity - we can also arrange celebratory bubbly at the end of the course, just get in touch to arrange.

Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All materials will be supplied for your project, you just need to bring along 1 metre of your chosen fabric (please let us know what you are bringing to make sure it's suitable). Alternatively fabrics can be purchased direct from us - we have a wide variety of fabrics to choose from - check out our fabrics page here for some inspiration.
