MDC Upholstery Workshop: 8-week Leisure Course

5th February - 25th March 2024

Work at your own pace one day a week over this 8-week course.

9am -3pm each Monday
Starts Monday 5th February - 25th March (1 week break for half term 12th February)

Bring your own project to this 8-week Upholstery Leisure Course. You will work at your own pace in a relaxed and friendly learning environment, developing a whole range of upholstery skills and gaining a great insight to this amazing trade. 

The course is suitable for beginners, or those with previous upholstery experience. Beginners are encouraged to start with a dining chair, footstool or something small, but the decision is yours. You are also invited to work on a variety of projects or just tackle one. 

You will learn how to completely re-upholster your item of choice, whether it's a prized family heirloom or a recent vintage find. If you don’t have a project in mind, the team can help you to source something, and are always on hand to give design and fabric inspiration. 

You can expect to learn how to:

* Strip down of your piece of furniture

* Apply basic woodwork skills, cleaning wood, glueing joints, filling holes

* Apply traditional upholstery including springs, stuffing, stitching

* Apply modern upholstery skills, cutting foam and sewing

We provide all the equipment you will need and can store your furniture at our workshop. Materials used will be invoiced at the end of each month and we are offering a 10% discount on all fabric purchased through us.

The course is over 8 weeks and costs £810.
