What you will do
6 hour workshop
Do you have a pice of furniture that has tatty covers and loose springs and maybe stuffing hanging out the bottom? This is the perfect opportunity to give it a new lease of life with a beautiful piece fabric. Sheila will guide you through the process of stripping your chair or stool and assessing whether you are going to give it the traditional treatment of layering up with webbing, tying in springs and covering with layers of sacking cloth coir or horsehair, stuffing, batting - cutting out your fabric and and arranging it over your chair, sewing, tacking, pulling more stitching and making piping or putting braiding - its a lovely slow craft, mindful and lovely to see pieces transform into beautiful seats. A delicious vegetarian lunch is served
