About the course

You will be guided through the process of upholstery including an explanation of the tools, materials and techniques involved. In addition you will be introduced to Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan and the techniques to paint the legs of your footstool to compliment your fabric. By the end of the day you will have created your very own bespoke footstool which is then yours to take away!

Everything is supplied including a delicious lunch, all you need is 1 metre of fabric suitable for upholstery!                                                                        

The upholstery workshops are great fun and a real source of inspiration. The skills learnt on this fun day can be transferred to many small items of furniture - once you start the sky is the limit!

  • The solid hardwood frame for you to work on
  • A full explanation of the tools and techniques to create you masterpiece
  • All Chalk Paint™ and upholstery materials
