As a beginner’s course, this class starts the process for learning French Upholstery. The instructor will teach the basics of French upholstery, including the use of French materials (webbing, cord, etc.), tools, and methods (different approaches to measuring, stitching, etc.) ending with a basic buttoned footstool. The students are expected to have some upholstery experience in upholstery but not necessarily experience with French Upholstery. This course will also accommodate those with some experience in French Upholstery (those who have taken the beginning section). For this we will ask that you notify the school so we can discuss options. One is to produce a panel which includes all the basic stitching used in French upholstery other options might be to reupholster a French chair (e.g. a Louis XVI chair). We will have another course in October so you can do both an introductory and an 'advanced’ session.
This class offers discounted rates for students and ICON members.
