Upholstery Workshop – Cheadle SK8 1PQ
Friday 6th December 2024 (10am – 3pm)


I’d love to welcome you to one of my one day (10 am to 3 pm) ‘Upholstery Workshops’ in the relaxed and friendly environment at The Village Hall in Cheadle.

Learn the wonderful craft of upholstery (no previous experience needed) by making and upholstering a lovely footstool from scratch in one day to take home with you whilst making some new like minded friends in a relaxed, supportive and beautiful environment. The workshop is ideal for complete beginners, or for people who have tried their hand at upholstery previously and would like to expand their skills.

I will be there every step of the way to guide you and take you through the process at your pace. With such a small group, there is plenty of time for one to one discussion. Full workshop notes on techniques, tools and materials and where to buy will be provided.

After the workshop you will be able to upholster many of your own pieces at home having learned all about the tools, foams, materials, folds, finishings etc. Please feel free to contact me after the day should you need any help or guidance.

The price includes lovely homemade cakes, cream scones, biscuits, tea and coffee throughout the day. Lunch is not included in the price so please bring some lunch with you.

About the Workshop

Cheadle Village Hall, previously known as The Drill Hall was built for the Territorials in the 1920’s. A local person recalls them using it for drill on Friday nights. In its recent past, The Drill Hall was renamed the Village Hall. It is a lovely, welcoming and comfortable venue, perfect for our workshops.

You will be able to choose the style and height of your bun feet (provided) and you will learn how to make and upholster a gorgeous footstool. You will paint or wax the bun feet in a colour / shade / style / height of your choice to complement your fabric. You will finish your footstool during the day to take home with you.

All tools, legs/feet, foams and materials to make your footstool are provided and are included in the price except bring a 1 metre square piece of your favourite fabric to cover your footstool. Should you need any guidance with this, please get in touch.
