This is a two-day workshop during which you will learn the beautiful and traditional technique of deep buttoning on your own footstool. You will be taken step by step through the process enabling you to create a lovely bespoke piece of furniture. You will be provided with a craftsman made frame (including tulip legs) and all the materials, notes and tuition needed to complete your footstool.
Please bring with you 1.5 metres of your chosen upholstery top fabric. Avoid plaids and checks for deep buttoning as the technique will distort the pattern. Wool, linen and velvet are all good fabrics.
Windows in all rooms will be opened to improve circulation so you may want to bring an extra layer of clothing such as a light jumper or cardigan.
Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.
All materials (apart from the 1.5 metre top fabric) are provided in the course fee. We will provide morning and afternoon refreshments and a light lunch on both days.
