Leisure Courses

COURSE INFORMATION

 

Our leisure course is suitable for all abilities and no previous experience or knowledge is required. If you have never picked up a hammer or a needle this is the one for you. Already have some experience? Come along and add valuable skills to your repertoire.

The courses are booked in five week blocks, many of my students have been booking continuously for the past 4 years! If you wish to continue after your initial course you are more than welcome to do so and each consecutive block will build your knowledge.

The aim of the courses is to develop your creative skills and to discover the basic & further principles of traditional and modern upholstery. Class sizes are friendly and intimate. With a maximum of just 6 students you will have plenty of opportunity with the tutor.

 

For all courses you should bring along a small upholstered item as your first project, such as a dining chair, drop-in seat or footstool. Projects should be easily transportable as storage is not available at the studio. You will also most likely want to continue your project at home with your new found skills.

Larger pieces of furniture can be considered but will need to be discussed beforehand as they will definitely take longer than five weeks. Please be aware that fabric sometimes hides a lot, so your project may need more time and work than is initially visible.

 

 

MATERIALS & TOOLS

You will choose and supply your own materials & fabrics, there are tools to use in the studio. We have tool kits & materials available to purchase, so you may work on your project at home.

 

COST

The 5 week block costs just £200.00 per student, (as mentioned does not include fabric, trim, or materials). Courses are payable in advance and your booking will be confirmed via email. More than one course may be booked at a time for larger or varied projects.
