Upholster a Footstool

 

This upholstery workshop is perfect for beginners.  You will be introduced to basic upholstery techniques and learn to create a footstool to take home and keep. 

 

There are 3 different size footstools to choose from and you will complete every step of the process in making it.  You also have a choice of legs for your footstool which are all made from solid wood. 

 

All tools and materials will be provided apart from the top cover fabric.  You will need to bring 1 metre of medium weight upholstery fabric of your choice with you.  The course will run from 9.30 am Saturday and we should be finished around lunch time on Sunday.  There will be a maximum of 4 people on the course, working in a relaxed atmosphere and at your own pace.

 

The course will be held in the brand new village hall in Stainton, Penrith on the fringe of the beautiful Lake District National Park. It is a couple of miles from Junction 40 of the M6 and there is free parking on site.

 

Tea, coffee and cake will be provided throughout the weekend but you may wish to bring your own lunch.  There is a pub in the village and the Rheged centre, Burger King and Greggs provide alternative dining options and are a short drive away.  Accommodation is plentiful, please let us know if you need a recommendation for your stay.

 

The price of the course is £180 excluding materials.  The cost of materials is dependent on the size of footstool and legs you choose:

Small - 15" x 12" £40

Medium - 24" x 15" £50

Large - 24" x 24" £60

The cost of the standard legs is included, but if you'd prefer legs with castors (recommended for the large stool) they will be an additional £20.
