Join upholsterer Katerina Gibb to learn how to restore and rework your old furniture. This one-day workshop presents an ideal opportunity to try your hand at upholstery and learn the basic skills required to begin your project. Bring along a small piece of furniture such as a dining chair with a drop seat, piano stool or footstool, along with your chosen fabric for final covering and work with Katerina to discover traditional upholstery techniques such as webbing, stuffing and fabric application. You may not fully complete the project in one day but will leave with the skills and inspiration to tackle simple upholstery tasks throughout your home. In order to make the most of the day, it’s a good idea to strip your furniture down prior to the workshop, Katerina can offer tips and advice on how to do this, just send us a photo of your project and we will get back to you with instructions.
