Bring a chair and spend five days learning to reupholster it with furniture restorer and Icon member Amanda Girling-Budd.

Event description: 

Fully booked - next course in February 2021.


You will learn either traditional or modern upholstery techniques depending on the age and design of your chair.  Our experienced tutors will share a wealth of skill and knowledge of modern and historical craft techniques in this five day session. You will need to bring a chair obviously, and if you are not sure whether it is suitable, please send us an image.

The class size is restricted to allow for social distancing, but it also means that you will get plenty of individual attention. We have PPE available for everyone.

The session runs for five continuous days, either Monday to Friday or Tuesday to Saturday (if it falls on a bank holiday), from 10.00am to 4.00pm each day.
