About the Course

We are offering an upholstery skills workshops suitable for beginners or those with some experience which lasts one day over 5 hours with a break for lunch.

You will work at your own level for an enjoyable experience, you can be a complete starter or have already completed some projects. The workshops are friendly and informal and will accommodate 2-3 people in a small group to ensure that everyone gets enough instruction.

The workshop content will be on the upholstery techniques needed to strip and recover a drop in seat or chair seat, covering the use of fabrics, suppliers and techniques to achieve the best look.

You will be guided through to complete your project, although it may not be possible to complete your project in one day depending on your project and experience, but we are available for follow up phone consultation should it not be finished.

There is local street parking nearby, but not directly at the venue. So we suggest that if you wish to try an alternative piece of furniture, that it should be something that you can carry. As a rule if you couldn't bring it on public transport, then it's too big!

You need to supply your own fabric and trims. If you need any help with your fabric please contact us before the course as we may be able to supply fabric and trim at a small extra cost from our stock. If you have difficulty finding a suitable chair we may be able to provide one at cost from our stock, advance notice is required for this to ensure supplies on the day.

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?

The fee includes all tuition, use of tools, tea, coffee and biscuits, and an 'Afternoon Tea' lunch will be taken at Mr Lyons Tea Room next door. Vegan, vegetarian and Gluten free diets can be catered for with advance notice.

We will provide all the tools that you need on the day and depending on your project any extra materials can be purchased from our stock on the day of the workshop.

Any question? Feel free to contact us. Please get in touch for details and bookings. Hope to see you soon.
