Upholstery Workshops Bring Your Own Project - Full Day
Whether you are new to the upholstery craft or someone with previous experience looking for a greater challenge, our workshops are suitable for all. We provide expert tuition in a relaxed and spacious environment. Class sizes are kept small (maximum 6 people per session) allowing for plenty of one-to-one support to guide you through your project. You will be guided through the design process and supported in stripping down and preparing your piece. You will be introduced to the various tools and advised on measuring and cutting your fabric and any pattern matching required. You will be tutored through the various techniques, from applying webbing, hessian and wadding, cuts and corners, to finishing techniques such as shallow or deep buttoning, stud work or piping. All our workshops are flexible, simply book a session that is convenient to you on a pay as you go basis. Our workshops are all 3 hours long. in the morning and afternoon with a 30 minute break for lunch.
What's included in the price?
Basic materials, such as staples, glue etc.. are included in the session cost. Any additional upholstery materials that you require to complete your project such as hessian, foam, webbing etc.. are available to buy at reduced prices. We have our fabric shop on site with hundreds of rolls of upholstery weight fabric on the roll and a wide range of remnants for smaller projects. With the ever growing threat from online retailers we humbly ask all of students to consider sourcing from our beautiful little shop if at all possible. If a specific fabric is required we can order this for you in advance of your class. Refreshments are provided. Bring your own lunch. There are kitchen facilities available for your use at lunchtime, a comfy dining area on site and a streamside picnic area and grassed courtyard for eating should the weather allow. There is an award winning local shop, a bakery and cafes in the nearby village of Hovingham.
