Re-upholster, Repair & Rejuvenate Workshop – Cancelled due to Covid-19

Sat April 25 - Sun April 26

Experience the delight and satisfaction that creating something by hand brings to your life.
This 2 day course offers a wonderful introduction to the practical and traditional craft of upholstery and furniture repair and rejuvenation.
This is a bring-your-own-chair workshop. Projects can be varied from structurally sound chairs ready for re-upholstery, to chairs that need a fix and timber rejuvenation. Projects can also include small timber furniture items, (with no upholstered element). such as bedside tables, occasional tables etc.
Tuition is tailored to each individual project, however demonstrations will be given for all techniques covered in class: in this way, students will be introduced to a broader set of skills above and beyond the techniques needed to for their own project.
• You will learn the correct and safe procedures on how to strip upholstered chairs. • You will learn about the upholstery techniques needed for your individual project. • You will learn about the different approaches to restoring timber furniture.
• You will learn how to fix minor repairs needed for your individual project.
• You will acquire the confidence and skills to tackle new projects on your own
$440 per person
Fees include use of tools on the day and most basic materials. Please note: Stuffings (foam or loose fibre), springs, cushion inserts and timber for repairs are not included in the course fees.
6 places for re-upholstery
4 places furniture repair and rejuvenation
**projects that include timber restorations will have limited access to the reupholstery element of the workshop due to time constraints.
