My sofa and chair reupholstery service will transform ageing and shabby sofas, chairs and furnishings, recapturing their original beauty with the replacement fabric of your choice.
The upholstery courses which I run will teach you how to apply the webbing to a chair, fix in the springs and stuff and stitch the filling just as our Victorian forbears did. You can also learn how to prepare, measure and carry out deep buttoning, a skill which will give great satisfaction in the finished piece.
You will also learn how the use the tools of the trade including how to use a magnetic hammer, web strainer and regulator. You will learn how to apply braid or double piping and discover which needles do which jobs. Throughout the course I will be there to teach and to help you to produce work that you will be proud of. If you would like to learn how to carry out more modern upholstery I can take you through the steps of using foam and a staple gun to produce chairs with modern comforts.
These courses are suitable for a total beginner, or for people who have some skills that they wish to build on.
