Two-day Chair Upholstery Workshop

Provided by:

Event runs from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM


This course offers a wonderful introduction to the practical and traditional craft of upholstery. Experience the delight and satisfaction that creating something by hand brings to your life. Learn new skills and have some fun during this two-day, bring-your-own-chair upholstery workshop. You will be taught the techniques required to restore a chair of your own during the course and acquire the confidence to tackle new projects on your own. You will learn the correct and safe procedures on how to strip your chair. There will be a short introductory session regarding different approaches to restoring timber chair frames. A variety of techniques and materials for timber finishes will be discussed, (there is no practical element to this component, due to time restraints). Tuition is tailored to each individual project, however demonstrations will be given to the group for every technique covered during class: in this way, you will be introduced to a broader set of skills, above and beyond the techniques needed to complete your own project. Entry Cost All tickets $340
