Upholstery and soft furnishings 2 day course



Angie introduces students on this 2 day course to the wonderful occupations of either upholstery, soft furnishings or covers so that you can go home and transform your homes. She has been teaching for nearly 20 years from her home just outside Matlock on the edge of the peak District and aims to find a happy balance between learning and enjoyment. There are 3 students on this 2 day introductory course ideal for beginners (or the very rusty) to try out and see if it is the craft for them. These two, six hour days are only suitable for small projects unless you are wanting to complete a project you have started on another class. Suggestions as to suitable projects are cushions - they are excellent for practising fiddly techniques, small roman blind, very small pair of curtains, footstool - we can make you up a frame at additional cost, ottoman box, headboard, drop in seat. You can bring along your sewing machine and just learn how to get the best out of it. If you are not sure a project is suitable please ring or email Angie. It is important that you can complete the project in the 2 days, if at all possible.

What's included in the price?

The course includes tea, coffee, cake and biscuits but please bring some lunch along with you. You are expected to bring the covering fabrics for your project/s with you but all other materials can be purchased form our stock and must be paid for at the end of the two days. Please ask Angie about suitable quantities of fabric to buy.
