Whether you are new to the upholstery craft or someone with previous experience looking for a greater challenge, our weekly 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, including any repairs to the frame should they be required, as well as waxing or painting woodwork. 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.
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.
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 and cost £8 per hour.
