In essence bring what chair you like and I will be able to guide you through the processes required to upholster the piece using industry standard techniques and materials.

What’s included – guidance in the correct and safe use of hand and pneumatic tools associated with upholstery. Instruction in either traditional or modern upholstery techniques depending on your project or personal interests. We have simple woodworking facilities for chair frame repairs, a cutting/sewing room containing a cutting table, sewing machines and few other specialist pieces of upholstery equipment. Refreshments are available throughout the sessions.

What’s not included – All fillings and fabrics used for individual projects. We can source these prior to commencing each upholstery project as required at an additional cost. Emailing photos in advance can help to build up a profile of each project and help ensure the right materials are in stock.

Either bring a packed lunch or make use of the Gallery Kitchen Café situated above the school on the ground floor of Creek Creative, which specialises in catering for diners with food intolerances who like really tasty food. Lunch typically costs £7.50 and is a huge hit with regular students.
