About the Course

Weekend taster session in traditional upholstery. Upholstery is a traditional craft which uses materials and techniques developed over centuries to produce elegant, comfortable seating that will last generations.

Over the weekend you will learn about the tools, materials, and history of the craft and we will teach you some key techniques. We will show you how to upholster a drop-in seat for a dining chair (either your own or one we can provide).

The course is designed as an introduction, so that you can see if you like upholstery. If you do, we have plenty of courses you can progress to. Maximum 8 students.

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

What's included in the price?

All materials apart from top cover fabric are included. Students can bring their own drop in seats or we can provide one.
