About the course:
This is a two-day course where we will look at both traditional and modern upholstery techniques and their uses. Bring with you a small project, e.g. drop in seat, small recovering projects, ottoman style box, headboard for bed; I suggest you ring when you book to check the suitability of your chosen project. You will need sufficient fabric to cover your project, all other materials I stock and will charge for as you use them.
The techniques taught include:
Traditional or Modern Upholstery techniques – the basic skills and techniques used to upholster a piece of furniture whichever is appropriate.
Simple Repairs – making good the frame (filling in holes, gluing joints).
Handling Fabrics and Materials Correctly – during cutting, stitching and fixing, including such materials as webbing, hessian, animal hair/coir fibre, waddings.
Handling Tools Correctly – including hammers, tack- lifters, ripping chisels etc.
