You choose your project and we guide you through the process of planning, stripping and re-upholstery using environmentally friendly materials.

      • Re-upholstery : strip and re-build your upholstered furniture

Please be aware that we do not allow the use of chemical varnish/lacquer removers in the workshop

COURSE LENGTH

Re-upholstery projects vary a lot in the time in takes to complete them and the number of classes you require will depend on your project and work speed. You can book in for an initial block of classes, at the end of which you will have the option to become a member of the class on a rolling basis.

SKILL LEVEL:

1/2 – Most suitable for those who have some previous upholstery experience. Beginners are welcome, but please do get in touch before you book so that we can make sure that you have a project to work on that is suitable for your level. We can also provide a small stool frame as an introductory project if required.

For students that want to enrol longer term and become class members, we operate a pay-as-go-you system. We will send you a payment agreement using the WorldPay FuturePay facility. This will enable us to take payment from a card for 2 classes, every 2 weeks in advance, on a rolling basis. You can leave the class at any time but we do ask for 2 weeks notice.

INCLUDED IN THE COURSE FEE:

Tutoring, tool use and basic sundries only.

You will need to source your own top fabric under our guidance.

Upholstered furniture sundries and off-the-roll upholstery materials such as hessian, calico, wool felt, interliner, and latex will be available to buy at the Makershed in small quantities and as required for your project.

HOW OUR CLASSES WORK:

All of our upholstery classes have a maximum student : tutor ratio of 6 : 1

Tuition is given on an individual basis at each student’s bench to ensure a fully COVID-secure working and learning environment.
