Paint and Upholster a Chair Workshop
This friendly beginners' class will give you an insight in how to properly prep, paint and upholster a simple piece of furniture.
We talk through the best methods for sealing, waxing and stain prevention and give our tips for the better, longer lasting paint finish.
We then have fun with stripping and re-covering a ‘drop in’ seat pad to co-ordinate with your chair from a selection of fabrics available (or bring your own).
Your item will be yours to take home.
Tutored by Lorna (Crabbitt & Co painted furniture) and Katie (Pippin Cottage Upholstery).
Please note: paint colour provided will be Autentico 'Almond' (a neutral warm putty like colour) and fabrics available will be from a selection provided by Katie. If you would like to bring your own fabric or pre-order a fabric from Katie or a paint colour from Lorna (we both have a wide selection then feel free to contact us a few weeks ahead.
If you have your own chair that you would prefer to work on, you are most welcome to bring that instead, please just ensure it is of the 'drop in' (removable seat pad) variety - feel free to email to check with us!
