ECO - Modern
2-day Weekend Course
Using modern upholstery techniques and alternative materials to foam, you will create your very own ECO contemporary statement footstool.
This is a fantastic opportunity to learn a few decorative finishes in one project!
Master the art of deep buttoning, button making, pleats, corners, piping, back-tacking and invisible stitch.
All you need to prepare is 1.5m of gorgeous upholstery-weight fabric.
Natural materials work better - aim to purchase a linen, twill, or cotton weave.
We provide the frame, hairpin legs, materials kit and tool hire in this fee.
You'll be guided 'Step by step' by our fantastic, friendly BUC Teach Team Tutors.
During your weekend with us, you'll be using compressed air staple guns, getting to grips with modern upholstery techniques and meeting like-minded classmates - perfect for beginners or experienced upholsterers wanting to practice and pick up a few more tricks.
Please use the buttons below to book your course - if we have sold out of places it will say so.
Be ready to choose the colour of your Hair Pin Legs when booking!
