Ministry of Upholstery - Classic Footstool Workshop

Ministry of Upholstery - Classic Footstool Workshop


The classic footstool workshop is a one-day (10am - 4pm) extravaganza combining painting techniques with upholstery, perfect for beginners... And lunch is included as well.

You will start the day with a solid hardwood frame and throughout the day you will follow the step by step guidance of the workshop leader, learning all about the tools and materials used, as well as covering lots of techniques from webbing, applying hessian and wadding, cutting fabric and corners.

You will also be introduced to basic painting techniques and have an opportunity to choose from a range of Fusion Mineral Paint colours to paint your legs to match your fabric choice!

At the end of the day’s workshop you will be able to take your footstool home to show off your new-found skills!

The workshop includes everything you need to make your stool, you just need to supply 'one meter of fabric'. We keep workshop sizes small so that you benefit from greater one on one teaching.

If you prefer we can create a bespoke workshop tailored to your individual needs, for further details please contact us to discuss your requirements.


PLEASE NOTE: We have the right to cancel a workshop, we will give you at least 7 days notice if we need to cancel. Should we need to cancel we will offer you an alternative date or a full refund.
