How will I be taught?
This course will be taught using a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, instruction, one to one guidance, and group discussions.
During the first few weeks you will complete an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) at the first session, this will establish your starting point and will aid your development throughout the course whilst learning new or improving on current skills. In addition to this you will receive on-going one to one support and feedback.
You will be encouraged to keep a notebook to record goals/ideas, processes and progress. You are welcome to bring a camera/use a camera phone to record the work that you do each week.
Please let us know if you require any additional support to enable you to take part in the course.
What do I need to bring with me?
You should bring in a small item of furniture such as a drop in seat or pin cushion seat as a first project.
As well as your chosen piece of furniture, you will need to bring in a small hammer, a pair of pliers, scissors, notebook and camera or camera phone in order to record your work. Most Specialist materials are usually available to be purchased at class. A small charge of approximately £10.00 per term is made for tacks and string.
Apart from pens and notebooks please do not buy books or equipment before the start of the course. Details will be discussed at the first session.
Please be mindful as we can do longer store furniture at the site we are using for this upholstery course.
