Upcycle A Chair – Upholstery & Fabric Printing

February 26, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm

$65 – $85
Upcycle A Chair Workshop

Come join us and learn how to upcycle a chair. Upholster the chair by re-covering the drop seat pad and learn how to paint and print on fabric.

All tools and materials will be provided, we hold a small supply of upholstery material and we’ll show you different techniques for decorating textiles too. You’re also welcome to bring along your own choice of upholstery fabric, to use on your chair.

Relax and let your creativity flow whilst you learn new skills and customise your chair. During the upcycle a chair workshop, we will guide you through:

  • designing your upcycled chair
  • preparing the chair
  • how to recover a drop seat pad
  • how to paint and print on fabric
  • how to protect your furniture with wax, varnish or a colour wash

Furniture upcycling gives you the creative freedom to custom design your own furniture and home. Following the workshop, you’ll be fully equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to confidently upcycle many types of chairs.

You’re welcome to either bring along or pre-order chair to work on and take home. It’s an additional £20 to pre-order a chair. Light refreshments will be provided. We also offer a 10% discount on furniture painting kits, tools and materials purchased during workshops.

Please note the workshop will be held on the first floor of the building which is accessed by a set of stairs or stair lift (for disabled access). There is free on-street parking outside this venue but it can be busy.  The area is well serviced by local buses.
