About the Course

This full on day workshop serves as an excellent introduction to upholstery whilst also offering you the opportunity to make a beautiful and incredibly stylish stool.

You will work in a small group of no more than four and following the step by step tuition, you will make this stool from scratch from a bare solid hardwood constructed frame. This workshop covers some of the same techniques as our classic footstool workshop, such as webbing, cutting foam, applying Hessian and wadding, but also covers different techniques like making and applying piping, applying borders and cutting from a pattern.

You will also be introduced to basic painting techniques and have an opportunity to choose from a range of Fusion Mineral Paint colours to paint your legs to match your fabric choice!

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those with some basic experience. It serves as an excellent introduction to the tools and materials used and as a perfect taster if you’re thinking about one of our longer workshops. It’s also perfect if you just want an awesome one off stool for your home at a fraction of the cost of buying one as, at the end of the day, the stool is yours to take home and admire!

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

The workshop includes everything you need to make your stool, you just need to supply 'one and half metre of fabric'.
We keep workshop sizes small so that you benefit from greater one on one teaching.
