Description:

12 week project based upholstery session, taught on Monday evenings, 6.30pm to 9.30pm. There is a week's break for half-term on this course. You bring your own project and we provide materials and expertise.

Guidelines for projects: Auctions are the best places to find chairs that are in need of reupholstering or restoring. But be careful about what you are buying. Make sure that the chair is all in one piece and not wobbly (unless of course you are taking the chair restoration course when a rickety chair would be ideal!). If you buy from an auction you cannot take it back if you find there is something wrong with it. The-saleroom.com has a list of upcoming auctions. If you are in doubt, buy from a second hand shop or antique shop, as you will be able to take it back if you find an unexpected problem. Beware of ebay because you cannot tell how good the frame is. You are totally reliant on the seller’s description and sometimes they are themselves unaware of problems. Get in touch if you need any help sourcing a project!

What's included in the price?

The term fee includes nearly all structural upholstery materials but not top cover or trimmings.
