This upholstery workshop is held in the fascinating Newbattle Abbey which has a 900 year history – there is something intriguing to see, where ever you look!
This workshop is for beginners looking for a one day taster course or those committed to a larger project. All skills levels welcome.
With this “mix and match” way of running a workshop, be inspired by the wide variety of chairs that are brought along for rejuvenation. We really believe that you can learn from each other and not just from the tutors. You will learn traditional skills working to professional standards.
Find out if upholstery works for you. Bring a piece of furniture, your fabric and any final trimming, such as braid or nailstrip. We provide all the tools. The materials like webbing, felt, calico and nails are provided for a small additional charge.
A footstool, dining chair with drop in seat or piano stool can be completed in one day. Before you come, strip off all the old materials and make sure there are no wobbly joints. Ideally, your frame should be made of “proper” wood because mdf and veneered wood can be difficult to work with and an easy project to start with is always a good idea!
