I make footstools to commission and have extensive knowledge of refurbishing projects. The classes and workshops provide all the equipment and guidance you need to make a footstool or headboard from new or to refurbish a chair or footstool of your own. Everyone enjoys coming to the classes and workshops and it's a lovely space in a countryside setting.
