About the Course

The classic footstool course is a one day extravaganza combining painting techniques with upholstery. You will start the day with a solid hardwood frame, then you will learn 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 Chalk Paint®, decorative paint by Annie Sloan and basic painting techniques and be able to choose from a palette of 30+ colours to paint your legs to match your fabric choice! And at the end of the day’s course you will be able to take your footstool home to show off your new found skills!

We can offer you a selection of fabric incurring an additional cost of £10 per metre.

All workshops are conducted in the dedicated studio in Wallasey. Please refer to our Terms & Conditions before booking.
