Times are strange at the moment, but our situation also means its the perfect time to learn something new.
This totally online course will allow you to learn how to traditionally upholster a small footstool from scratch.
You will learn how to web, stuff, sew and finish a footstool that you will be proud of.
How it works.......
Once you have booked on you will receive a box containing everything you will need for the course (if you choose this option). All tools and materials are included, except for your top cover. I can help you decided on that part if you would like and direct you to lots of different websites that are still supplying beautiful and affordable fabrics.
Then we start. I will upload two / three videos a week explaining, step by step how to upholster your stool. But the guidance doesn’t stop there. If you have questions then I would encourage you to email or call me and then I will reply to you. If I think a video is the best way to explain then I will upload one as soon as I can. I will also be holding live chat sessions through Zoom to see how everyone is getting on.
This whole process should be fun and informative. Anyone who has be taught by me in the past will know my teaching style is relaxed.
The only requirements are that you are on Facebook and have access to Zoom. (Both of which I can help with)
