Course description

Introduction to Traditional Upholstery

This course is designed as an introduction to upholstery. This weekend is suitable for anyone wishing to dip their toe in to upholstery and see if they enjoy it as a craft. No previous experience is necessary. Students will learn about tools and materials alongside tutoring in the basic techniques of traditional upholstery.

Over the weekend, students will learn how to upholster a small project such as drop in seat for a dining chair. Other suitable projects could be piano stools or pin cushion seats. If students have an alternative small project they would like to work on over the weekend it will be essential they contact the tutor beforehand.

Students will need to supply their own piece of furniture and top fabric. Usually no more than 1 metre will be required for a simple drop in chair. A good union linen or cotton would be perfectly adequate for a chair such as this. All tools are provided by the tutor.
