This course is approximately 16 hours and will run over 2 consecutive days from 9am - 5pm, 18th-19th September 2019. In this course you will learn:

  • Traditional methods of stuffing and stitching seat edges using long, bayonet needles and coir fibre

  • How to apply a simple top cover, (pleating and some essential upholstery cuts).

  • Slip stitching using a curved needle

  • A guide to upholstery tools

  • Upholstery materials and modern "traditional" alternatives

  • Tips on restoring rather than replacing traditional upholstery for future projects

  • How to use a tack hammer and apply webbing and hessian

  • how to make and attach float buttons

  • Close nailing and trims

  • Some French polishing skills (apply stain/shellac finish to wood)

You will learn the skills by making a rectangular stool with a solid hardwood frame which you will be able to take home with you at the end, demonstrating the skills you have acquired. You will also receive comprehensive notes.

You may choose between square tapering legs or round tapering legs for your stool.

A range of designer fabrics will be able to be purchased on the day at the cost of £10 each for your stool.

All materials will be provided (except fabric).
