CHAIR WEEKEND WORKSHOP
The Chair weekend workshop is a fantastic opportunity to start upholstering that project you’ve ‘been meaning to get around to doing for ages!’
This course is structured around the needs of you and your project.
You will benefit from class demonstrations and one-to-one tuition working closely with Leigh-Anne.
Your type and condition of chair will determine what skills and processes are necessary for its restoration, and how long that may take.
Please send a photo of your project to firstname.lastname@example.org for time scale, fabric amounts and any preparation necessary so you get the most you can from this short 2 day upholstery experience.
