Our craft courses will teach you a range of creative skills you can use to start a small business making and selling your own unique products. They're also a great way to improve your dexterity, meet new people and develop an interest.
You will learn how to use upholstery tools and equipment through a combination of one-to-one teaching, group demonstrations and discussions. Beginners must bring a simple project to the first class. i.e. a foot stool or drop in seat or simple dining chair. Once students have built up confidence to move on, the tutor will advise on a suitable piece to work on. Returning students will be encouraged to work on more challenging projects.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
- Use the tools confidently and safely
- Have knowledge of traditional and modern upholstery techniques
- Share knowledge with your peers through regular group discussions.
Beginners will be advised on a suitable in-class project e.g. a stool or dining chair. Returning students will be encouraged to work on more challenging projects.
You will complete an individual learning plan and provide self-assessment throughout the course. Photos and displays of your completed work will also be used.
There are no entry requirements. The tutor will discuss previous knowledge with you to help you choose a suitable upholstery project.
There will be materials you need to help with your studies. At the start of the course you will need to make a payment of approximately £40.00 for materials.
