About the Course
Learn the wonderful craft of upholstery (no previous experience needed) by making and upholstering a lovely footstool from scratch in one day to take home with you whilst make some new like minded friends in a relaxed and supportive environment.
Come along to one of our (one day) fun and friendly upholstery workshops at Cuerden View Cafe, Cuerden Valley Park, Preston, Lancashire.
The workshops are from 10am to 3pm (5 hours). A small group of no more than 6, therefore you will receive one to one instruction for much of the time.
Ideal for complete beginners, or for people who have dabbled in the wonderful craft of upholstery previously. You will learn how to make and upholster a gorgeous footstool from scratch (and to paint or wax the bun feet in a colour / shade / style / height of your choice to complement your fabric). You will finish the footstool during the day and be able to take it home with you to enjoy.

Joanne (The Boho Shed)
Attended a footstool upholstery course last week at Cuerden Park with Jo. I had a great day and Jo was fantastic at teaching us all step by step on how to create the stool. I learnt so much from her and feel confident that I could produce another on my own especially as we all received a print out of the step by step instructions to take home. I also met some lovely ladies and wouldn't hesitate going on another of Jo's other courses. Fantastic day!!!

Response from The Boho Shed:Thanks so much for your kind words Dawn, I really enjoyed the day with you all too. I'm really pleased you had a great day. Please let me know how you get on with your upholstery at home and if I can help at all, please just shout.
Just attended the footstool upholstery workshop today and had a great time. Everyone made gorgeous creations to take home. Jo is a great teacher passing on lots of knowledge and helpful tips. Small class so plenty of one to one time if you need it. The setting in the park is lovely and the lunch in the cafe was amazing. Definitely recommend you try one of Jo's workshops.
