About the Course

Come and enjoy the weekly classes and learn new skills whilst having fun. Thursday mornings from 10am to 12.30pm each week. Purpose-built bright workshop in the countryside with lovely views.

You can do traditional upholstery with webbing, hessian, horsehair and calico or you can make from new with modern foam and stapling techniques.

Participants have tackled a huge range of projects such as re-covering dining chairs and footstools, making new footstools, new headboards, re-covering a screen, rebuilding occasional chairs and refurbishing piano stools.
