About the Workshop

‘The Centre’ is a beautiful historic characterful building set in the heart of the stunning town of Poynton dating back to the 1850s. Poynton is a small thriving town with a village feel and high quality shops, bars and restaurants. Recreational walkways, cycle paths and bridleways have been formed along old colliery railway track beds linking to the Middlewood Way, the local canal network and the adjoining Peak District.

Our workshop will be held in one of the lovely bright and airy rooms within ‘The Centre’ historic building.

The workshop is ideal for complete beginners, or for people who have tried their hand at upholstery previously and would like to hone their skills. You will learn how to make and upholster a gorgeous footstool (and to 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.


For You to Bring

Please bring a 1 metre piece of your favourite fabric to cover your footstool. Should you need any guidance with this, please get in touch.

Please bring along cash or have your PayPal and/or on-line Bank Transfer details ready should you wish to purchase paint, products and/or tools at the workshop.
