1 Day - Contemporary Footstool Workshop

This full on day workshop serves as an excellent introduction to upholstery whilst also offering you the opportunity to make a beautiful and incredibly stylish stool.

You will work in a small group of no more than four and following the step by step tuition, you will make this stool from scratch from a bare solid hardwood constructed frame. This workshop covers some of the same techniques as our classic footstool workshop, such as webbing, cutting foam, applying Hessian and wadding, but also covers different techniques like making and applying piping, applying borders and cutting from a pattern.

You will also have a choice of Fusion Mineral paints and waxes to finish your legs to match your fabric. Everything is included in this workshop apart from 'one and half metre of fabric'.

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those with some basic experience. It serves as an excellent introduction to the tools and materials used and as a perfect taster if you’re thinking about one of our longer workshops. It’s also perfect if you just want an awesome one off stool for your home at a fraction of the cost of buying one as, at the end of the day, the stool is yours to take home and admire!
