What you will learn

You will learn how to traditionally repair the joints to three of the chairs (the other three chairs are structally sound) and sympathtically revive and restore the wood work on all six.

The seats need webbing and new stuffing. They are fixed Upholstery (no sewing machine required).  

All six chairs are antique balloon back chairs from three different makers therefore they have slight differences. The three with red seats are identical and need some restoration to the frame joints. The two with green seats are identical and structurally sound and the one with the blue/grey seat is also structually sound and has a slightly different design to the drop in seat. All three designs have slight variations to the turned legs (see photos above). Together they form a quirky unique set of chairs worthy of showing off.  What fabrics will you choose?

Depending on your skill level, we would estimate around 12 hours to complete one chair and around 24+ hours if you wish to complete 4 or more chairs.

Before you buy

You are most welcome make an appointment to visit the chairs at workshop and meet us for a face to face chat before purchasing.  Please note you are buying one chair only and materials and fabrics needed to transform this chair can be purchased from us during the classes or we can point you in the right direction to some of our favourite upholstery suppliers to ensure you achive your perfect look.
