About the Course

This course is available as a 1 day course on a Saturday and also as an evening class.
As a graduate of the UKs leading upholstery school, Manchester's 'Ministry of Upholstery', I have received Anthony Devine's stamp of approval, and can now offer one of his much loved footstool courses. Anthony can been seen in the new BBC1 TV show called Flipping Profit and also appears in BBCs Money For Nothing.

The classic footstool course is a one-day extravaganza combining painting techniques with upholstery, perfect for beginners.

You will start the day with a solid hardwood frame and throughout the day you will follow my step by step guidance, learning all about the tools and materials used, as well as covering lots of techniques from webbing, applying hessian and wadding, cutting fabric and corners. You will also be introduced to basic painting techniques and have an opportunity to choose from a wide range of colours to paint your legs to match your fabric choice! At the end of the day’s course you will be able to take your footstool home to show off your new-found skills!

The course includes everything you need to make your stool, you just need to supply one metre of fabric. Class sizes are kept small so that you benefit from greater one-to-one teaching and if you then fancy making another footstool for your friend or family member (and trust us, you will be asked!) then kits, containing everything you need to make the stools, will be available to purchase on the day.

The Studio is through the archway just next to Cooplands Bakery on Bridge Street in Tadcaster.
