Basic upholstery sundries such as tacks and webbing are included in the course fee. Off the roll upholstery materials such as hessian, calico, felt, wadding, and latex will be available to buy at the Makershed in small quantities and as required for your project. You will need to buy any top fabric independently and your tutor can advise you about what and where to buy when you make your upcycling plan.
As students projects vary so much in the time in takes to complete them, you can choose to keep your space for consecutive blocks of classes or takes breaks in between them to suit your schedule and budget. If you have completed the beginners courses with us you will be aware that upholstery projects do take time and patience and the number of classes you require will depend on your project and work speed.
