UPHOLSTERY 1.01 28th April
In this Introduction to Upholstery Workshop you'll be learning the basic upholstery skills while working on your own small bench, which is supplied as part of your workshop fee.
You'll be using professional techniques to strip old upholstery, select upholstery materials, choose cover fabric, attach materials with air-driven staple guns, make and attach covered buttons and assemble final bench.
All these skills are applicable to your own future small upholstery projects such as drop-in dining chair seats. A detailed tools and suppliers list is supplied.
Everything for the project is supplied except fabric. An info sheet will be supplied on booking (or on request beforehand).
You can bring your own fabric;
or purchase from the Rapt showroom in Jamberoo (open Saturday mornings 9am-12noon. In the showroom you can either choose from a selection of quality remnant fabrics, or pre-order from sample-stock direct from the suppliers at prices are well below RRP - a minimum of 2 weeks' leadtime is required);
or you can purchase fabric at the workshop on the day.
Participant numbers are limited to just 4, so you are guaranteed highly personalised tuition, in a relaxed and lighthearted atmosphere. Tea/coffee and refreshments are included - BYO lunch.
This workshop is run from 'BOTTOMS' END', the Rapt studio located in idyllic country surroundings at the end of a quiet country lane in the beautiful Jamberoo Valley NSW, (approximately half an hour south of Wollongong - an easy 2.5 hrs-ish from Sydney, or Canberra).
