The classic footstool workshop is a one-day extravaganza combining painting techniques with upholstery, perfect for beginners... And lunch is included as well.
You will start the day with a solid hardwood frame and throughout the day you will follow the step by step guidance of the workshop leader, learning all about the tools and materials used, as well as covering lots of techniques from webbing, applying hessian and wadding, cutting fabric and corners.
You will also be introduced to basic painting techniques and have an opportunity to choose from a wide range of Autentico chalk paint colours to paint your legs to match your fabric choice!
At the end of the day’s workshop you will be able to take your footstool home to show off your new-found skills!
The workshop includes everything you need to make your stool, you just need to supply 'one metre of fabric'. We keep workshop sizes small so that you benefit from greater one on one teaching.
