An exciting class for those new to upholstery or continuing with a current Forgan project.
Kenny will guide you through a variety of techniques and introduce you to the equipment needed for a small upholstery project.
There is a limited number of tools available at the Centre for the class to share. You may choose to invest in your own along the way.
To get started you will need a measuring tape, tailors chalk, fabric scissors and to bring a piece of furniture to work on. Don’t worry! This needn’t be expensive.

Upholstery starter project - a dining chair or stool, drop in dining seat or small footstool. No armchairs or large items. Upholstery is all about building up your skills, starting from the basics and developing into more complex techniques as you go on.

Unless you struggle with mobility, or travel on public transport to the centre, you must transport your project back and forth with you.
