Spring and summer upholstery course dates

More upholstery courses for spring and summer

Following the success of my January and February courses.  I have added some more dates at the Old Granda Studios. Hurray!

My workshops will teach students the foundations of upholstery, while I hope to expand on classes to offer skills in chair making and paint techniques too.

Choose from one of three courses; One day cushion course, the cube footstool, and the ottoman, a large footstool that can also double as a coffee table. Both courses teach students the basics in modern upholstery, with some traditional techniques too, learn paint techniques using Reloved vintage paints and learn to make buttons.

On the day students were introduced to an array of tools, materials and equipment, including the Brother Innov-is F420** sewing machine. Easy to use even for the beginner but these machines are just that bit more robust to deal with heavier, upholstery fabric.

Courses are capped at four people. to maximise tuition time. Reloved workshop students will also be offered discounts on all fabric ranges including Flock StudioKirkby Design and St. Judes.
