A SHORT COURSE IN BASIC UPHOLSTERY USING ECO FRIENDLY MATERIALS
This course involves upholstering a small stool using a mix of traditional and modern upholstery techniques and recycled and environmentally friendly materials. We provide all the materials, including the stool frame and a choice of top fabrics (you can bring your own top fabric if you prefer). At the end of the course the stool is yours to take home.
This taster course will provide you with basic upholstery skills which you can then build on in our Level 2 Eco Upholstery or Eco Furniture Upcycling classes.

- Use upholstery tools such as webbing stretchers, staple guns and tack hammers/lifters effectively
