Learn traditional upholstery techniques from an industry professional.
Are you sitting on something that is not only comfortable but that looks great as well? You should be. Furniture can become disposable, purely functional items that we have no emotional attachment to and that we dispose of and replace without too much consideration. More than ever we consume, throw away, repeat. It doesn't have to be that way. How much more enjoyment would you get out of a piece of furniture that you had invested time and thought into, chosen the colour of the frame, the fabric, the thickness of the padding, the finish? How much more satisfaction would you get out of knowing that your piece of furniture was carefully worked on with skilled hands to ensure you got exactly what you wanted? Your own unique piece that reflects you and your surroundings, something to love and treasure.
This course will provide you with the opportunity to learn about upholstery and re-upholstery through a combination of practical project work, group demonstration/discussion and individual tutoring. The sessions are informal and fun with the aim of giving everyone the confidence and ability to take on an upholstery project.
