Work on your own project, at your own pace with expert tuition, help and advice along the way.
Choose whether you wish to attend for three, four or five days where you can reupholster a dining chair with a sprung seat or a small nursing chair without arm pads. If you are stuck for a project our local Antique and Vintage furniture store, Bringsty Vintage, has lots of old chairs for sale.
Another great, local resource for finding furniture to upholster is The Shabby Chic Shac in Bromsberrow, HR8 1PG, just off J2 of the M50 on the Ledbury road A417. Or you can order online and have it delivered directly here so it’s waiting for you upon your arrival!
