Take a Seat - Paint and Upholster a Drop-in-Seat Chair



In this full day workshop, you learn how to prepare and paint one of our chairs, using an Acrylic Mineral Paint (Fusion Mineral Paint or Fleur Designer Paint), then learn how to upholster the seat using one of our fabrics!
All materials and tools are provided – including refreshments! You will receive step by step tuition, support and advice from your workshop leader – Lynn Murrell of The Butterfly’s Wing and will take home your beautiful restyled chair, along with lots of new knowledge!

All classes are small (maximum 4) to ensure each learner benefits from the support of the workshop leader. During the Covid-19 pandemic, all classes will be 1:1 or in household bubbles.

No refunds, but an option to join another workshop, within three months of the original, will be offered.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
