Entry requirements

This course runs at our English Bridge Campus.

An interest in learning more about reupholstering a chair.

What does the course involve?

During the course you will reupholster a piece of your own furniture (from a footstool size to a single chair the size of Parker Knoll chair). You will be breaking the chair down to a point where it can be recovered.

How is the course assessed?

As we only take small groups there is the time and scope to support and encourage everyone.

Additional notes

Students can provide the following:

Foot stool;

Dining chairs (more than one);

Single seat;

Enough fabric to cover the seat;

Chalk paint in any colour of their choice.

Recommendation: It is recommended that students wear appropriate clothing to the activity as removing fabric from an old chair can create a lot of dust. This is recommended throughout the course. It is also recommended that a mask and goggles be warn due to the dust. It is also recommended that if you have a small footstool to reupholster, that a second piece of furniture be brought in. This course requires a piece of furniture no bigger than dining chairs.

Please ask Course Advice to send you the week by week lesson plans and materials list. (this will give you a guide into the cost of the tools you will need).

No concessions available.
