Upholstery at The Potters Barn

Upholstery Class - Modern Techniques

With Alison Rose

No experience necessary.

If you would like to be able to strip down and cover chairs and learn the basics of upholstery and have little or no experience then why not try a weekend course set in the heart of the Cheshire countryside in a totally relaxed atmosphere?

The course is set in the beautiful Cheshire countryside. The class will take place on 1 or 2 days (depending on your work) in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

Start with something easy like a dining chair with a drop in seat or a pin cushion seat or small footstool.
Please make sure that joints on chairs are not loose as there will not be time to repair the basic structure of the chair.

During the course you will work on your own piece(s), at your own pace.

The course tutor will teach you how to :-

Strip a chair

Use a web stretcher

Use modern techniques to replace a chair seat with foam

Use polyester wadding

Use Fire – retardant calico

Put on a top cover (own material to be provided)

Use braiding (bring your own)
