I'm all about learning new skills so when I saw a local two week part upholstery course I booked on it straight away.
The project was a footstool which was included in the price, all I had to bring along was some fabric, I chose quite an old style of fabric but with the idea of making it quite contemporary!
Week one was all about stripping down the footstool and learning some techniques of how to do it properly
A good sanding and clear wax and I was all ready for part two of the course
It was a great course teaching us how to use the foam, stretch the fabric, staple to the footstool, add decoration as finishing touches and tidy up the underneath
The course was run by Maude & Stanley
