UPHOLSTERY 1.01 PRIVATE GROUP WORKSHOP
This workshop is suitable if you have YOUR OWN GROUP of friends, family or colleagues you'd like to work with on a DATE OF YOUR OWN choosing.
Minimum - and maximum - number of participants - 4.
Your group is guaranteed highly personalised tuition, in a relaxed and easy-going atmosphere. Tea, coffee and refreshments are included.
If you don't have your own group you can still join a general workshop - see other listings on this shop for dates and availability.
This Introduction to Upholstery workshop is for total beginners.
You'll learn everything you need to know to upholster your own small bench (which we provide). You'll be learning professional techniques including stripping old fabric, selection of upholstery materials, choice of fabric, attachment of materials using air-driven tools, button-making and attaching, and assembly.
Everything for the project is supplied except fabric. An info sheet will be supplied on booking (or on request prior to booking to help you decide).
Fabrics are available for 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 (a minimum of 2 weeks' leadtime is required, and our fabric prices are well below RRP). There will also be a limited choice of fabric available on the day of the workshop.
This workshop is run from 'BOTTOMS' END', the Rapt Upholstery 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).
