What you will learn

This is a excellent project for the beginner.  

The wooden frames are in good structural condition but require some restoration to the finish.

You will remove the old upholstery fabrics and fillings and restore or paint the frame before reupholstering.

If the colour of the wood work needs changing to suit your home then why not harness your artistic side and paint the frame.



The seats are fixed upholstery (no sewing machine required). You will learn how to web the seat and make a new pad ready for recovering in your chosen fabric. You could really have some fun with this project. If you wish to buy all four you can create a set of unique chairs to be proud of.

Depending on your skill level, we would estimate around 4 weeks to complete one chair and gain all the knowledge required to complete all four. Homework will be necessary to finish all four chairs in 4 weeks. Alternatively we estimate around 8 weeks to complete all four chairs in class.

Before you buy

You are most welcome make an appointment to visit the chair at 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 to transform this chair 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.
