Make your own Dressing Table / Footstool with Liam from Lakes and Fells
Designed for complete beginners, this weekend is perfect for your first foray into the upholstery world. With a max of 5 people on a workshop, engross yourself in a fun, relaxed and informative environment to produce a lovely piece of furniture to take home and show off to your friends and family!
Full tutorial throughout with Liam. You will learn about the tools (such as the air staple gun, which are particularly good fun) and materials used as well as covering lots of techniques including webbing, cutting fabric correctly, applying studs and buttoning. You will have an array of paints and waxes to finish your legs to compliment your fabric choice.
