This course is perfect for students wishing to learn the traditional art of upholstery. This is a full 1 day course (9am - 5pm) in which you will learn many traditional upholstery techniques. We begin with stripping the chair pad back to the frame and then rebuild the whole thing to the final fabric to live another life. You will use traditional materials such as hessians, tacks, horsehair and black and white webbing and upholstery twine. This is a perfect course to get you started on larger projects.
All you need to bring is your chosen drop in seat and final fabric. We provide the tea coffee and biscuits and a healthy homemade lunch.
At the end of the day you will take home your own finished chair that will last another lifetime.
Max of 6 per group.
