Evening Classes

 

We ignite a curiosity and passion for the upholstery process....

With a handful of tools and a few tricks up your sleeve, it's an addictive and highly rewarding skill to practice!

'Bring along a Chair'

 

Traditional upholstery is a highly labour intensive skill, that requires years of practice. That’s what makes it an exciting and endless learning journey as you pull apart furniture to reveal the trade secrets that lie underneath.

 

The materials are natural, the processes enchanting… and the transformation, impressive!

Evening classes at Bristol Upholstery Collective are a wonderful chance to really enjoy learning traditional upholstery techniques in a mixed class, where all students work on different items of furniture.

 

You'll benefit from seeing a variety of works being completed alongside your own project.

 

The beauty of a weekly class, is the available time to complete homework between classes if you wish to really make the most of tuition during the session with your tutor - you can achieve so much more!

Venue: Bristol upholstery Collective 186 Wells Road BS42AL

Time: 6:30pm - 9:30pm

Duration: 6 week term

Cost: £180 inc. tool hire and tuition.

Student discount on materials (average £10 - £40 depending on chair requirements)

No experience or tools necessary.

Beginners are advised to start with a small project in preparation to take on more ambitious projects, attending an additional term, once familiarised with the traditional tools and materials. Have a look through the student examples bellow, and start your upholstery adventure by booking on an evening course that suits you.

We’ll get you there comfortably…

 

If your seat has a ‘Loose cushion’ you’ll need to attend the BOX CUSHION SEWING workshop too!

PLEASE NOTE: Sprung Dining Chairs and smaller projects can be achieved in a 6 week term - anything more technical will take longer.

This 6 week traditional upholstery term  is very much dictated by what your chair needs.

Please be prepared to book onto another term to complete your project if necessary.
