Ever fancied trying upholstery? 

The Deep Buttoned Footstool Course is a one-day class suitable for capable beginners. You will start the day with a solid hardwood frame and throughout the day you will follow my step by step guidance, learning all about the tools and materials used, as well as covering lots of techniques from webbing, applying hessian and wadding, cutting fabric and corners. As the day progresses you will learn the techniques of 'deep-buttoning' or 'tufting', which is the process applied to 'Chesterfield' sofas. 

 

Please note, painting techniques will not be taught on this course. The legs on your footstool are made of beautiful beech wood and you can paint them at your leisure at home.

 

At the end of the day’s course you will be able to take your footstool home to show off your new-found skills!

 

The course includes everything you need to make your stool, you just need to supply one metre of fabric. Class sizes are kept small so that you benefit from greater one-to-one teaching and if you then fancy making another footstool for your friend or family member then kits, containing everything you need to make the stools, will be available to purchase on the day.  Treat yourself to a new skill or purchase a gift voucher course for a friend!

 

Please note, the pom-pom trim you see in the photo is not included. If you wish to bring some then please do so. You will need 3 metres.

This workshop runs for a full day on a Saturday, starting 09:00 am and will be held at:

1 Wharfebank Mews

Rear of 4-6 Bridge Street
