Learn Furniture Upholstery - An Introduction (The Makery, Bath)
One of our most popular workshops, this will give you a brilliant introduction to traditional upholstery techniques under the guidance of our very talented and experienced upholstery tutor, Nicky.
You’ll need to bring along one small, portable piece of furniture to upholster; a dining chair, ottoman or stool are all perfect. Please don't bring anything too large as we have limited time and want you to get as much done as possible in your introduction to Upholstery workshop!
You will also need to bring a piece of fabric to upholstery with. Please call/email if you have any questions about what to bring. We strongly advise you to strip down your furniture of existing fabric prior to the workshop to maximise your time here and ensure your best chance of finishing your project. Please be aware that not all people finish on the day though - it really depends on the furniture you choose to bring.
Please bring a packed lunch (Tea, coffee and soft drinks are provided)
Some additional materials may be charged at cost on the day depending on the size of your project. Suitable for beginners.
