Upholstery Workshop

6:00pm - 8:00pm (every Wednesday night for 8 weeks)


$ 210.00 AUD


Master a new skill and give your old furniture a new life – in a small group, with tutor assistance. Each student work on a piece of furniture of their choice, applying their knowledge and skills to literally transform it, into what in many cases is a work of art. In our courses we teach all the techniques – past and present - of upholstery, including the purpose and correct use of tools and working with fabrics whilst you redesign your chair.

Students will take their chair home after each class & bring it back for the next class.

PLEASE NOTE: The cost of materials and tools is not included.
