Maker's bio

I live in Lewes, and have been running a furniture and textile business making simply designed contemporary pieces. One of those pieces, the birch wood footstool is an especial delight to make, it is simple, useful, light & beautiful. With none of the corners that so frustrate upholstery newcomers, I thought it made the perfect 1 day workshop experience. For after a ‘hard’ day learning, making, laughing, creating you get to take home and put your feet up on a foostool, and say “That was Rounded by Me’.

"I’ve never done anything like this before but under Lucy’s patient guidance I brought home a beautiful footstool which has pride of place by our fireplace. It was a really fun day with friends and I learnt a lot! Lewes is also a great place to visit, make sure you have time to take in the sites on your crafty day out!"

"I did the workshop in a group of complete novices and with Lucy's step-by-step guidance, many professional upholsterer's tips and calm reassurance, all of us produced our very own, super-stylish footstools. Magic. As someone who has a desk-based, screen-staring job all week, I really enjoyed using my brain in a completely different way, working with my hands and learning to use the different tools. And spending the day in a lovely studio space. It's also very satisfying to come home with and be proud of a piece of furniture you have made yourself. Lucy is a fantastic and kind teacher and has a wealth of knowledge on all things upholstery and furniture. I came with friends but can imagine enjoying the workshop just as much with people I hadn't met before - it was a thoroughly enjoyable day. And the footstool is well-used!"

Roundedby responded:

" Thank you Cath for your lovely review - so glad you enjoyed it - the whole group did so well, and I loved ALL of your colour choices! "

Jayne Phoenix reviewed: Make Your Own : 1 Day Modern Upholstered Footstool Workshop - no experience required - the perfect gift!

"I did this wonderful course with Lucy. Before the course I was able to choose my fabric from a beautiful selection of wools. The course was a full and interesting day, in a lovely studio. I was amazed at how many layers the stool has, and how intricate the techniques were. All tools were laid out ready and we were taught what each was before proceeding to complete each stage with Lucy's expert tuition and support. She was great at teaching and at ensuring our stools were perfect at every stage. We had a wonderful lunch , in the sunshine in our case as it was a lovely sunny day, before getting back to work. Best of all at the end of the day, we each had our own stools completed and ready to take home. I enjoyed this course so much I am thinking of doing it again to make a matching stool as we compete at home to use the one I made . I highly recommend this course "

Roundedby responded:

" Ah Jayne your grey stool was a triumph! So glad you enjoyed the course, know you are a very keen maker, so am always delighted when folk who are already ‘handy’ with tools get a lot out of the courses too! Yes do come again, life is too short to be arguing over a footstool!"

"I had a fabulous time making a birch wood footstool with Lucy. Not only did I learn new skills but I also met new people, shared the learning experience and laughed a lot along the way. The workshop space is inspiring and Lucy teaches in a way which makes you believe you can do it, even if you have never tried this before! It’s a great experience and of course I now have a lovely footstool to encourage me to put my feet up. Highly recommend."

Roundedby responded:

" Thank you Gill - Ha! Glad you have your feet up - you did so well, and I loved your finished footstool!"
