Hello, we hope you are all well and safe.
We are delighted to announce we will be back up and running in the summer after the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions have been lifted and hope you will find our workshops a welcome delight after the very difficult times we have all had
Learn the wonderful craft of upholstery (no previous experience needed) by making and upholstering a lovely footstool from scratch in one day to take home with you whilst making some new like minded friends in a relaxed, supportive and beautiful environment.
Come along to one of our one day (10am to 3pm) fun and friendly Upholstery Workshops in the picturesque village of Billinge on the outskirts of Wigan.
Ideal for complete beginners, or for people who have dabbled in upholstery previously. You will learn the basic skills of upholstery and all about the tools and techniques required so you can continue with your own projects at home.
A small group of no more than 6, therefore you will receive one to one instruction for much of the time.
All you will need to bring is some lovely fabric to cover your footstool. You will be able to choose the style and height of your bun feet and you will paint or wax the bun feet in a colour / shade / style of your choice to complement your fabric.
I will be there every step of the way to guide you and to take you through the process at your pace. With such a small group, there is plenty of time for one to one discussion. Full workshop notes on techniques, tools and materials and where to buy will be provided.
For more information or to book a place please contact Joanne via the 'Chat with the Maker' button.
I look forward to meeting you and to spending an enjoyable and creative day with you.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All tools, legs/feet and materials to make your footstool are provided and are included in the price except bring a 1 metre piece of your favourite fabric to cover your footstool. Should you need any guidance with this, please get in touch.
The price also includes lovely homemade cakes, cream scones, biscuits, tea and coffee throughout the day. Lunch is not included in the price so please bring some lunch with you.
Parking is available free of charge at the venue.
Please come in comfortable clothing and ideally an apron (not essential). Also comfortable shoes.
We are extremely proud of the lovely reviews we have received from people attending previous workshops. Please take a look in The Boho Shed review section.
Should you choose to join us on this workshop, I look forward to meeting you and sharing a lovely and creative day with you.
This is the Upholstery Workshop. We also run Level 1 Furniture Painting Workshop for beginners/intermediates for those of you who would like to learn some all-round skills. Please see our other 'The Boho Shed' course listings here on the Craft Courses site.
