Upholstery Classes at Needle Rock – Learn how to upholster your own chair with our beginners course.
Needle Rock is pleased to announce the launch of their new upholstery classes, so you can learn the skills to reupholster your own chair, and transform it into a piece you will be proud of.
Looking for a new hobby? Why not learn the craft of upholstery. It is fascinating, and you will look at upholstered furniture in a completely new way. You will no longer feel hopeless when a well-loved chair starts to look tired and lumpy!
Needle Rock are offering a beginners’ six-week upholstery course on Saturday mornings to begin on October 10th for 6 weeks. The cost is £225, payable in advance. The classes will run from 10am to 1pm. The main project will be the reupholstering of your own project chair. We will need to see photos of your project chair prior to the course just to make sure it is suitable for your level of ability. If you do not have a suitable chair, contact us and we can help you source one.
If your chair is wobbly or broken…
A chair repair service is available in-house at an additional cost (dependent on damage). So, if your chair is wobbly or missing a component, don’t worry as Gordon can fix it for you.
Ali is a professionally trained upholsterer and a full member of the Association of Master Upholsterers & Soft Furnishers (AMUSF), covering both modern and traditional upholstery techniques. Ali will show you the skills required to transform your piece into something you will be proud of, and skills you can be confident in. If you finish your chairs – maybe make a footstool, the choice is yours!
You will need some basic upholstery tools…
a basic toolkit can be bought directly from us, or single items, if you already have some tools. Upholstery supplies and fabric remnants can be bought directly from Needle Rock. Needle Rock has accounts with an array of fabric manufacturers and sample books are available at the workshop for you to peruse. A discounted rate will be available to course members.
Class sizes are limited due to Covid-19 restrictions; with only 1 place remaining for this session. For further details, or to secure your booking, contact [email protected] or call 07534 216297.
