Work on your own project, at your own pace with expert tuition, help and advice along the way.
This two-day weekend course is ideal for reupholstering a dining chair or stool with a drop-in or stuff over seat. 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!
Also, three, four, or five day course available.
“…it really deserves 5 stars. The course was brilliantly run, the food was excellent and the room wonderful. Lucy and Stephen are great hosts and I learnt so much from Lucy’s expertise…As a complete beginner I took a drop-in seat and it was the perfect size project for 2 days…Thank you for a lovely weekend and I’m already trying to find a date to come back!”

About the course:
This is a two-day course where we will look at both traditional and modern upholstery techniques and their uses. Bring with you a small project, e.g. drop in seat, small recovering projects, ottoman style box, headboard for bed; I suggest you ring when you book to check the suitability of your chosen project. You will need sufficient fabric to cover your project, all other materials I stock and will charge for as you use them.
The techniques taught include:
