On Saturday the 20th September & Sunday the 21st September Leigh-Anne Treadwell will be holding a two day upholstery course here at the Winsford Centre.
You will be guided through the upholstery process by experienced and qualified tutor Leigh-Anne Treadwell. She will be demonstrating step-by-step techniques to the whole group, and deliver one-on-one tuition to all individuals and projects.
You will have a chance to discuss your aims with Leigh-Anne to create an achievable plan for the weekend project, just email a photo of your intended project to seek advice before the start of the course.
Class sizes are limited to 10 per class, so there is plenty of space to work comfortably. Classes start at 9.00 – 16.00/16.30 each day.
Leigh-Anne currently has an early bird booking offer – make two bookings before the 31st July and pay £299 for two.
There is a choice of two projects you can complete.
1. The Deep Button Foot Stool Project
£165 including stool frame and material kit, tool hire, furniture paint workshop and tuition – you will need to bring 1m square fabric and a packed lunch.
This course has been designed by Leigh-Anne to deliver advanced results for complete beginners, introducing ‘the whole upholstery experience’ for you to have a wide knowledge of skills to apply to all items of furniture.
Deep buttoning – made famous by Chesterfield and their sofa’s, is a beautifully fun and satisfying process, adding a luxurious and stunning feature to the most basic of items.
2. The Upholstery Weekend Course
£125 including tool hire and materials – you just need to bring along your chair, fabric and a packed lunch.
Any item larger than a dinning chair may not be completed within the time allocated, but please feel free to contact Leigh-Anne if you have a project desperate to be done. Send a photo to discuss the furniture’s feasibility.
This is your chance to transform your furniture that you may have been meaning to get round to for years! Email Leigh-Anne a photo of your project and she will guide you through its high quality completion, teaching you all the tricks necessary.
Learn a new and exciting skill to restore your tired old furniture, using traditional techniques of webbing, horse hair stuffing, edge roll stitching and calico shaping, to set you on your upholstery journey.
Please note: Upholstery is highly addictive!
This wonderful weekend course is set in the heart of North Devon just 20 miles from Exeter in the stunning location of The Winsford Trust in Beaworthy. The views are incredible adding to an already enjoyable weekend.
