Upholstery Basics
Learn how to professionally recover your chair/chairs so that they look like new!
We’ll provide all the tools and materials you’ll need with the exception of your fabric.

This workshop is perfect for beginners who want to get a taste of upholstery. We’ll teach you about the tools and materials required and our tips and tricks to create a professional finished look!

  • Upholstery fabric for recovering.
  • A staple remover. (We will have these available for sale if you don’t have one.)
  • Small pair of pliers


  • Foam and wadding
  • Use of staplers and all other tools

Please note: Any other materials required (eg. jute webbing) will incur a small surcharge on the day.

What will you learn?
