In this exciting course, Kat will help students of all levels from complete novices to experienced upholsterers. All types of projects are possible everything from simple drop in seats to complex buttoning using only tradition techniques hair and stitched seats with webbing and springs (We urge all students to send a picture of the object if this is your first class with the school at least 2 weeks before the start of the term). Obviously, the skill and experience level of the student will guide what is an acceptable project.
All base materials can be provided by the school (although a charge may apply at the end of the course – the students will be provided materials at a discounted price – an estimate of the material costs can be provided once a photo of the piece is provided). The top cover can also be ordered through the tutor (students will receive a 10% discount on fabric orders.) Tools will be provided by the tutor for the duration of the class. If students do want to purchase tools, they, again, can order them through the tutor at a discount. Students learn how to upholster traditional and modern furniture by working on their own prized objects.
Class Dates All classes are on Thursday 10, 17, 24 Sept, 1, 8, 15, 22 Oct, 5, 12, 19 Nov (no classes on School Holidays).
Class Times: All classes start at 10:00 a.m. and end at 1:00 p.m..
