Perfect project for a beginner
As an antique piece it is of course showing signs of wear and age but is structually sound with a few minor woodwork repairs required.
If you love antiques this is a lovely sympathetic restoration project. We can guide you on how to repair and revive the wooden frame and refinish with oil and wax.
With a new reupholstered seat this is a handsome chair indeed. The seat is fixed Upholstery (no sewing machine required in this process). You will learn how to replace the old filling and stuffing with traditional fillings and recover using core upholstery techniques in your chosen fabric.
Before you buy
You are most welcome make an appointment to visit the chair at our workshop and meet us for a face to face chat before purchasing. Please note you are buying the chair only and materials and fabrics needed can be purchased 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.
Depending on your skill level, we would estimate around 4 -5 weeks to complete this project. Maybe less if you are keen to work on your chair at home between classes.
