About this course

This 2 day practical Upholstery course is for students to develop upholstery skills and work on project of their own choice. Learn how to use bridal loops, webbing, springing, blind stitching, and horse hair within a small first project. Demonstrations on general techniques will be given throughout the course and relevant to the students' projects.

How will I be taught?

Craft courses provide an opportunity for students to learn and develop skills, techniques and understand how to design for a chosen craft to a higher level. You will be encouraged to look at the work of other craftspeople and artists, both contemporary and historical and keep a sketchbook/ notebook to record goals/ ideas, processes and progress. There will be one to one guidance, group critiques and self-assessment against individualised learning outcomes stated for the course.
Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising craftspeople.

What do I need to bring with me?

Please bring a dining chair or stool to your first class, plus a 4oz tack hammer, small pair of pliers, scissors, needle and cotton, pen and notebook.
Please ask before buying large pieces of furniture as there is limited storage space available in the centre and we cannot accommodate sofas or settees and this is a two day course. Apart from pens and notebooks please do not buy books or equipment before the start of the course. A small charge is made for tacks and string. Most upholstery materials are usually available to be purchased at the class.
Please be mindful as we can do longer store furniture at the site we are using for this upholstery course.
