Upholstery and Restoration 2 day Workshop – bring your own chair
Sat 25 November at 9:30 am - Sun 26 November at 5:00 pm$580
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.
There will be the opportunity to restore the timber on your chair as well as fixing minor repairs on chair frames as well as tuition and guidance on various timber finishes.
Tuition is tailored to each individual project, however, demonstrations will be offered 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.
- You will learn the correct and safe procedures on how to strip upholstered chairs.
- You will learn the correct and safe way to use specialised professional upholstery tools.
- You will learn about the upholstery techniques needed for your individual project.
- You will have the opportunity to learn about additional upholstery techniques beyond those required for your own project.
- You will acquire the confidence and skills to tackle new projects on your own.
- Groups are kept small at six participants to maximise individual learning.
