UPHOLSTERY 1.02 SUNDAY 19th April POSTPONED till further notice
$360.00 Coming Soon
This workshop is ideal for students who have completed Upholstery 1.01 (Repeat Offenders) because it builds on the skills learnt in that workshop, but is ALSO OK for complete beginners. Being a bigger bench than the small stool used in Upholstery 1.01 means you’ll need to ‘reasonably’ fit to complete this project.
In this 1 day workshop you'll be making a big bench, with 8 buttons.
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
* safe use of professional equipment including air-driven staple guns and foam cutters
* attachment of foam and wadding
* how to estimate, layout and attach cover fabric
* how to make professional corners
* making and attaching covered buttons
* different leg styles and fittings.
The finished bench dimension is 110cm long x 45cm wide x 45 - 50cm high (dep. on legs)
Everything for the project is supplied except fabric.
Morning and afternoon tea are provided.
The workshop price includes as standard a set of 4 stained mat-black wooden legs as shown in photo 1 (purple/flowery velvet cover).
Because these might not suit everyone, the following leg options are available:
1. Steel hairpin + $60.00 set (shown on Cloudy Blues bench in attached pics)
2. Wooden retro, raw pine + $50.00 set (shown on pink native flowers bench in attached pics)
3. Wooden cabriole legs, raw pine + $100 set (not shown yet - please email me if interested). You can finish these yourself in any timber finish or paint, or ask me for a quote to do so for you.
Either 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.
Fabric requirements (type and size) will be advised in the info sheet provided on booking.
Participant numbers are limited to just 4, so you are guaranteed highly personalised tuition, in a relaxed and lighthearted atmosphere.
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).
There’s a great variety of local accommodation nearby, from AirBnBs with stunning views, to rustic country hotel to award-winning upmarket country house B&B. If you’d like any recommendations, just ask.
